Migration links 2,0 UNIX To NT
I have migrated links 2.0: UNIX to NT.

I have put the correct path in links.cfg
d:/kxksk/html/etc, etc,

I have changed the extension of the archives .cgi to .pl

But with the permissions I have problems because I cannot change them via FTP.

In this server I have access to a Control Panel. In this control panel I can change the permissions of the directories but not to the archives.
The options that I have in this Control Panel are:
1, Reading
2, Write
3, Scripts execution
4, .exe execution.

As they are equivalences of the permissions for links 2,0 with this Control Panel?
777 = ?
666 =?
In other words, with the options of this Control Panel, as I must put permissions to links 2.0?

In general everything works fine, except search.pl (search.cgi). It generates this error:

Error Message : Error [search.cgi]: Unable to open search log file. Reason: Permission denied
Script Location : D:\xvrt\mysite.com\web\cgi-bin\links\search.pl
Perl Version : 5.006

What is the problem???

Also I have doubts on like protecting the directory admin. Somebody knows like doing this?

And finally I have problems with SSI, how to use SSI in NT??

Thanks for all & sorry for my pooooor english.

chmod is a UNIX function!

You need to ask your hosting company to change the directory/file permissions to the appropriate READ, WRITE, EXECUTE, DELETE depending on which file or directory it is.

File permissions for NT has been discussed MANY times in this forum.
