Error including libraries:
I'm getting this error message:

Error including libraries: Can't locate http://www.your-town.com/cgi-bin/links/admin/links.cfg in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/i386-bsdos /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-bsdos /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005 .) at admin.cgi line 27.

Why do the perl paths listed not match my server's perl path (/usr/local/BIN/perl)?... and is this causing the error? How can I change the perl path in LINKS to match my server's?

Uh...it ain't your PERL PATH.

You are using a RELATIVE URL for the LINKS.CFG require statement NOT your ABSOLUTE/FULL path to your LINKS.CFG.

If you are truly on a Windows server, then you need to use something like the following in the admin.cgi script:


require "C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/account/cgi-bin/links/admin/links.cfg";

And ALSO your PATHS and URL variables in the links.cfg file are probably WRONG.

-------------This is definitely a recording-------------
