yesterday I tried a very basic cgi program, which comes with xampp 1.7.1 in cgi-bin directory.
but my browser said:
"You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server."
The perl code is :
#!"C:\xampp\perl\bin\perl.exe" print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; print '<html>'; print '<head>'; print '<meta name="author" content="Kay Vogelgesang">'; print '<link href="/xampp/xampp.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">'; print '</head>'; print "<body> <p><h1>GCI with MiniPerl</h1>"; print "CGI with MiniPerl is ready ...</body></html>";
The file name is "perltest.cgi" and I executed it by typing
"http://localhost/C:/xampp/cgi-bin/perltest.cgi" in my browser.
