[REBOL] Re: Trying to get Rebol CGI working on my website
From: editor:the-sports-page at: 23-Mar-2003 11:16
Thanks for the help. What really bugs me *now* is that I've been able to
get Rebol CGI working on a *different* Windows-based webhost. I was
thinking about this for awhile, and remembered that I have placed an
exceedingly low-priority website of my employer's with a host called
CrystalTech. They are reasonably priced(though not as low as ReadyHosting),
and have an excellent reputation for support. I ftp'ed up the rebol.exe and
the example file now.cgi up to the site's cgi-bin directory. It worked
right off! No configuration necessary.
Know why? Well, it appears that on this CrystalTech installation, the
shebang line is actually being read and understood! How do I know? Well, I
changed the original text of the now.cgi shebang line(#!cgi-bin/rebol.exe
-c) to reference a copy of Rebol in a non-existent
directory(#!cgi-bin/rebol/rebol.exe -c). Sure enough, I received an error
message(Can't exec cgi-bin/rebol/rebol at
C:\INETPUB\harpco-pa\cgi-bin\now.cgi line 1.) that clearly indicates that
the shebang line is being processed as it would on a *nix/Apache system.
Now I'm *really* flummoxed.
