new install - path problems
Hello,

I am sure that this is a common question or at least an easy problem. I have uploaded everything in ASCII mode for Links 2.0. I set the correct permissions on the required files and directories.

I tried to access the admin.cgi script and receive the following error message.

CGIwrap Error: Script is not executable. Issue chmod 755 /www/home/nlfire.com/cgi-bin/links/admin/admin.cgi

My links.cfg is as follows:

# PATH and URL of Admin CGI directory. No Trailing Slash.
$db_script_path = "/cgi-bin/links/admin";
$db_dir_url = "http://www.nlfire.com/cgi-bin/links/admin";

# URL of User CGI directory. No Trailing Slash.
$db_cgi_url = "http://www.nlfire.com/cgi-bin/links";

# PATH and URL of Pages to be built. No Trailing Slash.
$build_root_path = "/cgi-bin/links/pages";
$build_root_url = "http://www.nlfire.com/cgi-bin/links/pages";

I think that I have the path wrong some how. Any direction?

Our site is being hosted on a Netcom/Mindspring website and the site resides in the htdocs directory. The path to the admin directory is as follows
htdocs/cgi-bin/links/admin

Thanks in advance.
