I just wanted to report back with my ongoing problems and get your feedback, Kurt.

Even after support said the cgi-bin was turned on for my site, I still could not get things working.

Today, I made some progress in getting information. I host with hostgator, so this may help someone else, I don't know.

"You didn't have executable permissions on the file, and you were missing "print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";" from the perl file."

When I asked for explanations they said:

"Permissions on files and folders can not be world or group writable. Please make sure your files are 644 and scripts/folders 755. Anything like 777 would cause failures".

So is this right and will this work for this script?:
- blogbomb_admin.cgi - 644
- feedsearch_ssi.cgi - 644
- data.pl - 644
- /data - 755
- /data/cache - 644

- /templates - 755
- /XIT - 755
- /libwww - 755

"I believe Dave was refeering to the actual cgi script feeds_admin.cgi"

So Kurt, where would I put the line "print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";" in the blogbomb_admin.cgi file? Is that
written up correctly? "print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";"

At this point, I get a 500 error for the admin log in. I don't know if they put the line "print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";" in or not. They say they don't do script support.

Thanks for your help.
