Install Error
Error message:
couldn't create child process: 22502: C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/cgi-bin/install.cgi

What directory do install.cgi and install.dat belong in?

I am trying to install on a Win98 machine with Apache HTTP Server 2.0. MySQL 3.23.51 and ActivePerl for Windows.

It may be necessary to change the first line of install.cgi. By default, it is #!/usr/bin/perl, however you'll need to change this to reflect the path to Perl on your system - typically, something like: #!c:/Perl/bin/perl.exe. The actually location of install.cgi and install.dat don't matter, as long as they are in the same directory and install.cgi can be invoked as a CGI script.
