What file permissions do I need for my CGI script?

CGIs must be set with executable file permissions or else requests for the script from the web server will result in an Internal Server error. Scripts that need to be executable should have their permission set with chmod 755. This sets the file's permissions so that the file's owner may read, write, and execute the file, and anyone else can only read and execute it.

1. Save a copy of this script on your local hard drive.

2. Upload the file into your local /cgi-bin directory.

3. Then, instead of calling the universal /cgi-sys directory, you would call your own /cgi-bin directory.

It will look something like this:

NOTE: You do NOT include the extension of your domain (ie. '.com', '.net', '.org').
