CGI Script
Author Mark R. Robertson on 04-16-2003 at 14:56 (EST)
I have spent the past 4 days trying everything to get the Perl script to execute on UNIX Server hosted by EarthLink. I was successful in getting the to run but not the We have double checked to paths, permissions, etc., but to no avail. I even had a programmer spend a couple of hours reviewing the code and he can't figure out what is wrong. I believe that I have it configured correctly:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl (verified with EarthLink)

# uShop Online Shopping System

# All rights reserved.
$version = "3.50";
# See the uShop User's Guide for assistance installing and using uShop.
# Also, visit our website at
