I see the folders are automatically set to 775. I tried setting it to 755, same result.
I am using debian 4 and have cgi setup for the web site. I have run other cgi scripts before.
Any ideas on why this file won't run?
I don't know anything about patabots stuff (I try not to run code I have to pay for
When you say you run the code, do you mean from the command line or through your web browser? If you make an ssh connection and run the code from the command line, what does it display?
