But I've got some recovered memories of the installation ... and I did run into a couple of problems. Maybe these points below will help Gesa: 1. With these two simple changes, you must then put *.r scripts in ...\apache\cgi-bin 2. Assuming you install Rebol in ...\Apache\Rebol, then all your *.r scripts must start with the three lines: #!rebol/rebol.exe -csi rebol [] (The line in the middle is blank. I think that is important) 3. Don't use a word processor (MS/Word, or WordPerfect, or WordPad) to knock together a quick first-time script. Even if saved as ASCII, it won't have the correct line endings that Apache (which comes from the UNIX world) expects....Apache will misread the first line and dump a very misleading message onto the error log. If you have no other editor available, the DOS mode EDIT.EXE will save files in Apache-friendly ASCII. --Colin.
