You have:

# PATH and URL of Admin CGI directory. No Trailing Slash.
$db_script_path = "/cgi-bin/links/admin";

This needs to be the full (absolute) path. It will normally include either your username or your domain name (on a shared server, anyway). It is generally different than the ftp address. Here is an example...

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

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

# PATH and URL of Pages to be built. No Trailing Slash.
$build_root_path = "/www/j/jameswooten/htdocs/patches";
$build_root_url = "http://jamesdpatches.com/patches";

Also, the 'pages' directory should be in the www/html part of the server, not in the cgi-bin. And, you need to set this:

# Set only ONE of either $db_mail_path which should go to a
# mail program like sendmail, or $db_smtp_server which will use
# a SMTP server. Do not set both at once!

# PATH of sendmail. # SMTP Server
$db_mail_path = ''; $db_smtp_server = '';

Have you looked over this page...
