Hi,

I am a new user of Abyss and testing perl scripts but no luck, a simple test script shows an HTTP 404 error (page not found).

I already did the Perl support setup as described in the help section but still getting the same error.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Error 404 means the web server could not find the file you are trying to use. Make sure it is in the htdocs folder then try again.

thanks Andy! but i'm wondering why in the setup your web document, it said to store the scripts in cgi-bin folder and the folder does not even exists.

anyway, it's fine now ... thanks again

cheers!

The documentation says the cgi-bin does not exist and is also not needed because Abyss knows how to execute these files already.

Abyss Web Server can execute Perl scripts regardless of their location so cgi-bin is not really required. But if it can make your script happy, you can create cgi-bin inside your htdocs directory and put the files there.

thanks for the info ... i was actually creating the cgi-bin folder inside the Abyss Web Server folder and it is not working ... it did not occur to me that it should be inside the htdocs folder as well :)

thanks again :)

You can still create cgi-bin in the Abyss Web Server folder , just copy the
following settings I have for the cgi-bin Alias and thats all you do. LateR!

Create cgi-bin outside of your htdocs and add this Alias.

Virtual Path: /cgi-bin
Real Path: cgi-bin
