Looking at ReadyHosting.com's support pages and at your error message, I am
guessing that the script is being run through Perl. It appears as though
only .pl and .cgi extensions are accepted and that these scripts are more
tightly bound to perl. I don't know what web server is being used for your
hosted site, but the main site is running "Microsoft-IIS/5.0 on Windows
2000" according to netcraft.com. Does this seem right?
Does anyone know how to "encourage" IIS to run additional cgi scripts
through an added in scripting exe?
I am guessing that you may not be successful, but lets see if someone knows
IIS well enough to help you further.
