CGI Scripting


CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface.

Our servers have the capability to run CGI scripts based on Perl 5.18 and ASP (Active Server Pages) languages. ASP is a our language of choice, since it is very powerful with the growing family of ActiveX.

The cgi-bin directory is reserved for FrontPage, therefor it is read-only,
but you will be able to run scripts in any other folders.

Simply upload your script(s) into a folder of your choice and it should be able to function.

PERL 5.18
  1. .cgi and .pl extentions are supported.
  2. The mail function is supported by an ActiveX component.
  3. Location of Perl (#!/usr/local/bin/perl) is not needed.
  4. Physical path: "/wwwroot/PUT_YOUR_LOGON_NAME_HERE"
    (e.g. if your domain is foo.com, your logon name is foo)
