[REBOL] Re: Why does my html ACTION call merely display and not execute my scrip

From: kracik:mbox:dkm:cz at: 2-Mar-2001 12:21

Hi Michael, AFAIK all versions of IIS for Windows NT are configured with the management console. Only Personal Web Server (crippled IIS4 version) for Windows 9x needs configuration in the registry. Also, scripts don't have to be in cgi-bin directory if IIS recognizes them by .r suffix. I'd first suggest a simpler test than a POST request from HTML form. Here's how I set up REBOL as CGI on Windows 2000 Advanced Server with 64 MB memory: I made a simple script: ================== REBOL [] print "Content-Type: text/plain^m^j" print "hi" print mold system/options/cgi print system/version ================== saved it as C:\inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-test.r Then I configured the web server with the management console Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Internet Services Management according to the attached picture (Listar that runs the REBOL mailing list will probably strip the attachment so I CC it to you directly). Then I started Internet Explorer and typed in the address bar. The script ran and gave this output: ================== hi make object! [ server-software: "Microsoft-IIS/5.0" server-name: "" gateway-interface: "CGI/1.1" server-protocol: "HTTP/1.1" server-port: "80" request-method: "GET" path-info: "/cgi-test.r" path-translated: "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-test.r" script-name: "/cgi-test.r" query-string: none remote-host: "" remote-addr: "" auth-type: none remote-user: none remote-ident: none Content-Type: none content-length: "0" other-headers: ["HTTP_ACCEPT" {image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, */*} "HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE" "en-us" HTTP_CONNECTION "Keep-Alive" "HTTP_HOST" "" "HTTP_USER_AGENT" {Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)} HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING "gzip, deflate"] ] ================== So try this and if it will work, try a simple HTML form with ACTION="/cgi-test.r" Hope this helps, -- Michal Kracik Michael Harleman wrote:
