Running Perl Script from webpage

Post by squeakytown » Mon Oct 27, 2014 12:51 pm

Hi,

I created a couple of test perl scripts and placed them in the website cgi-bin folder with the correct permissions.

I can't get the perl scripts to execute from the webpage ie
Click on <a href="web/www.{website}.com/cgi-bin/print.pl">this link</a> to run

I get the 404 not found error.
What path or changes do I need?

Thanks
Dave
