Whenever I install a cgi script, and point to it in my browser, i get a 404 error even though IT IS THE RIGHT PATH and THE FILE EXISTS. This makes no sense to me. It's like my server thinks it doesn't exist or something. Any ideas as to why? This is frustrating as hell!
i've installed this script at least 30 times before on other servers, including on another domain on the same server i'm using right now, and it works just fine. VERY weird I just tried to install a different script and it's not working either, this time in the base (/cgi-bin/) cgi dir, instead of /cgi-bin/directory/blah.cgi...
If your running IIS in Windows and I'm not sure if you are or not, ensure your ISAPI is set correctly and is enabled in permissions. Otherwise, the web server won't recognise the file type and display 404.
