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

From: gjones05:mail:orion at: 24-Feb-2001 15:15

From: Michael Harleman I need to make an html form ACTION call to a rebol script in order to get the data entered on a form. The problem is that although I am using scripts I took off or, and I have Windows 2000 IIS setup with a virtual cgi-bin directory, and the form does call the scripts, the call merely displays the text within the scripts even recognizing tags and doesn't execute the scripts with rebol. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this is not working correctly. According to the books REBOL for Dummies, REBOL User's Guide, and independent HTML Documentation publications, the project is set up correctly.
Hi, Mike, It sounds as though the server does not recognize that the script file is an executable, instead of just another form of content. I am far more familiar with Apache than IIS, but the principles are usually the same. Double check the settings of IIS to "be sure" (apparently covered on the third page of chapter 18 of Ralph's book). The server needs to know that a script with the extension of .r is executed by REBOL (it will also need the complete path to the rebol version that you are using). Hope this helps. --Scott
