How do I upload a CGI script to my web space?

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article

CGI scripts can be uploaded to anywhere in your hosting package, however it's traditional to upload them into cgi-bin for security. Many CGI scripts are written in Perl. Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing Perl scripts:

[*]Upload to your cgi-bin directory and ensure proper file permission settings (755)
[*]Upload in ASCII transfer mode (NOT BINARY mode).
[*]The first line of each script must read: #!/usr/bin/perl
[*]The script must end with a .cgi or a .pl extension.
