making dbman work
I downloaded the software, and did an initial edit of default.cfg and db.cgi. I then uploaded all of the files into my cgi-bin directory, and pointed to the correct path for perl, as instructed. Being half-talented, half-idiot regarding cgi functionality, I am at a loss as to what to do next. I also loaded the database file into a directory, and pointed to the database in default.cfg.

How do I generate web pages for my database automatically? Or, did I misunderstand something.

I have the basic skills to point to the right files etc, but am not sure exactly how to make this thing work after that.

ANy help for the unitiated would be appreciated. I have reviewed some of the helpful responses to other posts, and very much appreciate that you do not have any of the "rtfm" types of responses that used to be so common on help forums.

If it is appropriate to make a suggestion here, I would very much have appreciated a step-by-step documentation for the whole process of making this work. The README.TXT is a good start, but presumes a bit too much for many folks who might want to make this work themselves.

Sincerely,
