I dont know where the proper forum for this subject is but can anyone tell me step by step to get a cgi-perl script
to run on MS personal web server? I keep getting a "HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error" whenever I try to run the script.
thanks.

so you do have a perl interpreter installed.
Say u have perl installed @ d:\perl
try supplying this header
#!d:\perl\bin\perl.exe -w
as the first line of the script.
Am not sure if it w'd work. But it's worth a try.
