However, when I try to access localhost/ahtml the server returns a 500 Internal server error. Im sorry if this question has been asked before, I did search but i found nothing. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

dellmann,

Try running ahtml.exe from a Windows command line box by typing (you may need to change the path):

 Code: c:\program files\ahtml\ahtml.exe

What is the output/error messages you get?

I tried what you suggested: I entered C:\Program Files\seliSoft\ActiveHTML\AHTML.exe (this is the correct path), into the windows "run" dialog on the windows 2000 start menu. A DOS window opens, but then closes before I can read its contents. Any ideas?

It seems that there is a little misunderstanding here.

When you run cmd/command, a black window is displayed. When you type in this window the path of ahtml.exe, does this window close??? Or do you get again the prompt (C:\....>) after running ahtml.exe?

dellmann,

Very strange!

Can you please execute in the command line window:

 Code: "C:\Program Files\seliSoft\ActiveHTML\AHTML.exe" "C:\Program Files\seliSoft\ActiveHTML\AHTML\default.asp"

What is the exact output you get?

I installed the newest ActiveHTML version, on top of the 1.00.00.3, which was not working at all, just opened and lagged the PC, not showing the page in the end. Im running Windows XP SP2.

I use Dreamwear 8, and even tho i put the word test, no database connection or anything, it still gives me 500 error. Error 500 > Internal server error. Might this be because of 2.3 beta? Here you can see configurations are right And the ones for abyss,

 Posted: Thu Mar 02, 2006 12:19 pm    Post subject: BxDANXB, The example was referring to /asptest but this was an example. You'll have to adapt it to your actual paths (and not add it as it is if you do not have an /asptest directory). The fact that you are using 2.3 Beta is not related to the problem you're facing. In 2.3 we have not changed the portions of our code which deal with CGI processes (including ActiveHTML). Can you access ASP files inside http://127.0.0.1/ahtml ? Do they work?_________________Support Team Aprelium - http://www.aprelium.com

 Posted: Fri Mar 03, 2006 10:52 am    Post subject: BxDANXB, We suggest reinstalling ActiveHTML. If the problem persists, please contact SeliSoft (ActiveHTML publisher) as the problem you're describing here does not seem to be related to Abyss Web Server (since running ActiveHTML from the command line gives also an error)._________________Support Team Aprelium - http://www.aprelium.com
