SPEEDY ROCKS!
Some of you may recall I was having difficulty getting speedyCGI to run on a shared Cobalt RaQ server. Now it appears my problems are over. WOOOHOOO!

After numerous e-mails with Sam Horrocks, developer of speedyCGI, he figured it out. My opertaing system was not passing along the correct path during the make. The fix was pretty simple after he figured it out.

The real kicker was I had to edit speedy's src/optdefs file and change the default value for BackendProg to the location where I wanted speedy_backend installed. Then after I went through the make process I had to modify the gforum.cgi script. I changed the shebang line to point to speedy and I added a "use lib" that points to the speedyCGI module.

MY FORUMS SMOKES NOW!

I do have a question though. Why is it I do not need to modify the path to perl in the admin setup? What is that for?
