Permissions issue on NT
I did a seacrh but didnt find this exact problem. Im usually comfortable with UNIX and Perl, but in NT im an idiot. Anyway...

Heres the sitch.
In reflecting a www /links directory for the links pages, I get an unable to write permission denied error. The directory AND index.shtml are CHMOD 777

I CAN and have changed the display pages dir to a cgi-dir one. That allows the build, BUT then (apart from security) it then refuses to allow visitors to view any page not directly called. IOW, if the link is /NEW/ then you get a viewable permission denied, BUT if you were to link or type in New/index.shtml it works. As the BUILD feature does NOT add the page names to the links it means it doesnt proved vieable links by default.

So, anyhow...
The real problem when all is said.

Why is it NOT gaining permission to write to the www dir and files when they are modded to 777?
This is NT and I really havent a clue why as this has never occured on UNIX for me.

Is it some "other" permission that is preventing it (perhaps required of the host themselves?
