ushop_cgiscript_fn.pl is a Perl script that must be configured and
put in the cgi directory on your server if you are going to use any of the
CGI order applets. Note: We would have preferred not to use any CGI scripts,
however, since the Java language itself does not allow applets to write
to files, we had to make this CGI script to write the order files onto
the secure server.
In order to configure the CGI script for your server, you can follow the instructions
below or use our new "uShop CGI Setup Wizard" at our
The "uShop CGI Setup Wizard" will actually generate a CGI script for your server along
with personalized instructions on how to download it onto your server.
If not using the "uShop CGI Setup Wizard", you will need to manually configure to CGI script.
To do this, start by opening the ushop_cgiscript.pl file with any standard text editor
- such as NotePad or WordPad. Answer the configuration questions at the top of the script
and save the file as text. The questions mostly deal with some store preferences like
where you want to email the order notications, but there are also some server specific
questions such as where Perl is located on your server. The script has provided
suggestions of the most common settings, but you may need to ask your internet service
provider if you do not know.
If you need any assistance configuring the CGI script and/or have any trouble configuring
