    I've got a 3rd party CGI Guestbook script from here:
    http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-22_11-5076796.html

    cPanel says I need to put it here:
    /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/

    I tried getting to the above through filezilla, and it says it doesn't exist...

    So, I instead put it in cPanel's cgi-bin here:
    /public_html/cgi-bin

    and updated the code to do so, but alas:
    [​IMG]

    Halp?

    Need to get to my current dead end job so I'll post any code later if needed.

    Thanks! :x:

    You don't visit public_html in your browser, public_html is your document root. So you need to visit yourdomain.com/cgi-bin

    That said, I really wouldn't bother with some outdated freeware perl guestbook script... more than likely it'll be insecure as fuck.

    I really have no idea what I'm doing here, just trying to put up what a client asked me to. Sound's like it's shit though.

    drpepper: I'll try that, thanks.

    Is there any place that offers up decent free scripts? Like a guestbook? That myself as a nub could set up?

    Don't use CGI in the first place. There's plenty of PHP stuff that's a shit-tonne easier to setup..
