Libraries Error
I got some error after trying to install the Links v2.0.

The error message was: "Error including libraries: Can't locate /cgi-bin/links/admin/db.pl at admin.cgi line 28. Make sure they exist, permissions are set properly, and paths are set correctly."

I checked the db.pl file and it was already uploaded.

This is the links.cfg file:
