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

From: gscottjones:mchsi at: 18-Mar-2003 16:03

Hi, Dave, I suspect that you are feeling frustrated by now. Since no obvious solutions have popped up, in the spirit of trying to be helpful, I would like to expound a bit on my original answer, and offer a final suggestion. The readhyhosting help pages suggest that scripts ending in .pl or .cgi are automatically run through Perl. Perl sees the first line: #!/home/your-account/rebol -c and thinks you what to run yet another program from a shell. Doing a search on google for the error message that you received shows that PerlIS is an isapi dll version of perl that does not allow shelling (forking). There is a slim chance that IIS may allow an alternate extension *if* it also can pseudo-interpret the shebang (#!) line (this was one of the issues that I simply do not recall). I would suggest one more trial, and this time naming the file with the .r extension (leaving all the other instructions the same as in the tutorial). It will either choke on the name of the extension, saying that this extension is not allowed, or it may choke due to a path or naming problem, which is actually good news. Depending on *exactly* what your first line reads, I might try experiements with the following additional variations: #!d:\html\users\mysitesnamecom\html\cgi-bin\rebol.exe -c #!d:\\html\\users\\mysitesnamecom\\html\\cgi-bin\\rebol.exe -c #!d:/html/users/mysitesnamecom/html/cgi-bin/rebol.exe -c --Scott Jones
