"wizard doesn't help"
Posted by Gerry Roe on Feb-22-00 at 02:17 PM (EST)
My host has a perl syntax analyzer, which gives me
the following results:

Name "main::uShop_total" used only once: possible typo at /u29/gruver/cgi-bin/ushop_cgiscript.cgi line 262.
Name "main::uShop_orderid" used only once: possible typo at /u29/gruver/cgi-bin/ushop_cgiscript.cgi line 261.
/u29/gruver/cgi-bin/ushop_cgiscript.cgi syntax OK


The host gives me the following information for using perl scripts:



Information commonly needed for perl scripts:

Path to perl: /usr/bin/perl
Version of perl: 5.004.04
Path to sendmail: /usr/lib/sendmail
Operating system: BSDi (older accounts), Linux (newer and some older
accounts) & AIX (Enterprise accounts only)

I guess I have an 'older' account, whatever they mean by that.

The paths are correctly set in the script, and a #! is used before the path to perl. The script was uploaded using ascii. The extention .pl was changed to .cgi, which is what the other scripts in my cgi-bin directory use. Permissions are set to read and execute for everybody. My email address uses a /@ in the script.

What else is there, and what might the 'typo' references mean? Thanks.

Gerry,

Have you tried to run the script? What happens?

When you uploaded the file, you did so in ASCII mode right?

I've tried to run it by putting the path in the location window of the browser, and by sending the order form. In both cases I get an Internal Server Error. I did upload it in ASCII, using WS_FTP.

Could the misconfiguration result from contradictions in the script relating to storing the orders on my host, etc.? Or specifying the SMTP server although it's a UNIX host?

Gerry,

Can you email me a copy of your script and give me an url so I can take a look at it?

Thanks,
Charlie Edmunds
