Web Hosting With Cgi - How to Install Other CGI Scripts
Here's how to install your own scripts:
1. Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings. All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx). If you need help in changing script permissions, please see the following:
2. Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode)
3. The first line of each script must read: #!/usr/bin/perl
4. Ensure the permissions are set to 755
HostMonster does not put limits on cgi scripts outside the use of malicious or harmful/damaging scripts
