Building Pages-CGI Error
I am new and have just installed Links 2.0. I was able to install, add a new categoy, and add a new site, but when I try t build a page it does not go all the way through and I get a CGI error. This is what it looks like:

I have created a pages/index.html page, but it is just a blank page. Do I need to do something to this page. Do I need to edit nph-build? Please help.

Didi you try to chmod 666 for your permission on this file index.html ?

Since you are on a Windows server, you need to make sure that the permissions of the directory where the LINKS pages are generated are the following:

Owner: Read, Write, Execute
Everyone: Read, Write, Execute
Group: Read, Write, Execute


Wrong set of permissions.
