Common Error?
I have installed 3 cgi scripts in my whole life.
All on the same server.
This time ive tried links2.1
With a silly error.
The file admin.cgi will not open in my browser!
I have 2 machines and one askes me to open or save as
if i open i look at the source code.if i save i get the file on my harddrive.

This is problly a really easy problem to fix is it virtualave?
Do they let this script intall?

Try opening that file in notepad. What does it say? Chances are you have a path set incorrectly or perhaps forgot to set permissions on a file. You also might want to contact one of the installers in the resources section. Some installers work for free, but you usually get what you pay for!

Good Luck!

Virtual Avenue does not run on a Windows platform... However, if you are in fact on a Windows server, make sure your administrator has associated both .cgi and .pl file extensions with perl.exe.

And no, VirtualAvenue does not allow this script to be used ( it falls under there 'automated linking system' category ).

Happy Coding,
