Local install...
Hi. I've just installed Apache, Perl 5, PHP 4.0.6, MySQL etc onto my computer at home. I'm trying to install Links SQL. However, the install script does not want to accept my path to perl Frown My path is #!perl (yes, it is correct, i have laready run basic scripts with it). Is there a work around to stop the error being brought up in the setup?

Thanks

That can't be the correct path. If you install Perl into your C: drive the path will be:

#!/perl/bin/perl

You don't use the directory, you use the binary location.

#!/usr/bin/perl will work on Windows machines?

#!c:/path/to/perl

Should work on windows machines. I don't use windows for webserving, but you need to define a full path -- and on a windows machine that includes the device name as well.

Ok, so my perl.exe file is at;

C:\Program Files\nusphere\perl\bin\perl.exe

So my path would be;

#!c:C:\Program Files\nusphere\perl\bin\ ???

Thanks

You don't need to use the device name even.

#!/perl/bin/perl works perfectly for me

I installed into E:\Perl

Try with forward slashes and without c: and .exe - it should still work.
