Guestbook CGI

I’ve got a 3rd party CGI Guestbook script from here:

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:

Halp?

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

Thanks!

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That said, I really wouldn’t bother with some outdated freeware perl guestbook script… more than likely it’ll be insecure as fuck.

Takes me back to 2001 where I used to sell my modified wwwboard script

"SKEEGEE"

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.

WALL of text…

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

nvm CGIexpo.com

its all about content management systems today bro

dont even waste your time

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

Simple, PHP, no database, easy setup. Done.

Right on, right on. I’ll have a go at it. Thanks all.
