|When finalizing an order the cgi script tries to download itself. The fix seems to be permissions set correctly - my host has reset permissions to 755 for the cgi-bin on the secure NT server. It still goes through the download scenario. I did not encounter this when I was testing using the public server. After moving to SSL and setting up a cgi-bin there the problem cropped up. Everything else works great until the last step. My host says I should check individual classes for references to the cgi script ?

|Actually, you should take the whole Applet variable out of the equation, by trying to go to the URL of the script on your server. My guess is that will cause the same download problem.|
What should happen when you go to the URL of the script, is that the script should generate the uShop Copyright Page, similar to when you go to the URL of the script on our server:
If just trying this on your server generates the same "script tries to download" results, see the suggestions at:
And if those suggestions don't work, the problem probably has to do with your account not being configured to execute Perl script. In that case, try installing the basic Perl test script described at:
and then show that to your web hosting providers. They would then be able to quickly recognize the problem and get things working for you.
