I had a same problem 5 minutes ago, Recived the same message, however after a couple minutes of trying to figure out whats wrong, finnaly I found out that I made a mistake while setting up the links.pdf file. The problem was with path to the admin cgi directory, this how it looks in my case
$db_script_path = "/home/mydomain/mydomain-www/cgi-bin/links/admin.

hope this helps

You need to specify the full absolute paths in links.cfg.

If you have telnet access, go into the directory and type "pwd". That will list the path for you.


Due to repeated requests for support via ICQ, I am once again offering support online.

The ONLY number I will accept requests on is #53788453. Messages sent to my other numbers will not pass through to me, as I have security settings set to ignore messages from users not on that list.

I don't know how often I will be active on this number, as it is for only when I am free to offer assistance.

Could this signature be any longer? :)
