[REBOL] Re: Trying to get Rebol CGI working on my website

From: editor:the-sports-page at: 23-Mar-2003 11:16

Scott, 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. Dave Fobare
