    cgi-bin folder

    Level 7
      Hi,

      I've made up some forms for a website but when I link to the perl script in
      the cgi-bin folder it comes up with "You are not authorised to view this
      page".

      Am I linking it wrong or doing something else wrong? I've found this
      problem on a few sites I've worked on and I've fixed it by linking to a
      script on our own site but I'd rather figure this out than work around it.

      Thanks

          Ask your host to give you read permissions on that folder.
