System Path for Network Solutions Account?
I successfully installed and ran Links 2.0 on a different server, but now that I have switched to Network Solutions I cannot seem to get Links running. I get this message when I try to run admin.cgi:

Error including libraries: Can't locate /cgi-bin/links/admin/db.pl in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/i686-linux
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/i686-linux
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7/i686-linux
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at admin.cgi line 28.

Make sure they exist, permissions are set properly, and paths are set correctly.
So these are the paths I set in links.cfg:

# Paths and URL's to Important Stuff
# --------------------------------------------------------
# PATH and URL of Admin CGI directory. No Trailing Slash.
$db_script_path = "/cgi-bin/links/admin";
$db_dir_url = "http://www.tricot-treat.com/cgi-bin/links/admin";

# URL of User CGI directory. No Trailing Slash.
$db_cgi_url = "http://mydomain.com/cgi-bin/links";

# PATH and URL of Pages to be built. No Trailing Slash.
$build_root_path = "/htdocs/links/pages";
$build_root_url = "http://mydomain.com/links/pages";


I would be eternally grateful for help with this very basic question!

 OK, I've sorted it out. But not soon enough to be able to delete my original post. Sorry.

Can you post what you did? I'm having the same error at Network Solutions.

Hi,

Sounds like you are using RELATIVE PATHS, not the FULL PATHS.

For example:

Relative: /cgi-bin/links/admin
Full: /home/username/domain.com/cgi-bin/links/admin

A god way to find this out, is with a simple script like so (attached).

Just upload to your admin folder, CHMOD to 755 - and run it from your browser.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Thanks for the help, but I can't get the script to run. I get an Internal Server Error.

I set the CHMOD to 755 and changed the Perl line to #!/usr/local/bin/perl but that didn't seem to help. I need find the error logs. I just started with Net Sol, so I haven't figured our where everything is at yet.

Added:
I found the error logs and it doesn't show any errors (at least for this problem).

Hi,

Do you have SSH or Telnet working?

Try running from there:

cd /path/to/folder
perl acevars.cgi

..and see what the output is.


Have you *ever* had perl scripts working on the current server btw?

acevars.cgi is a VERY basic script, so should work.

Cheers
