Please help me!

I have read through the installation instructions and completed everything as noted and required. When I go to my upload page:


nothing is working or happening. When I view the page source, I see the xupload.js file is not being included for whatever reason. This might be part or all of the problem. I have tried moving the script tags in the header, I have tried using a relative and absolute address for the xupload source tag and it will not include. Here are the details to what I have done so far and files etc:

I installed the following files and folders in /web/midwestcomposite.com/cgi-bin/upload/

HTML (Folder and contents)
STYLES (Folder and contents)
temp (Folder & CHMOD to 755)
Templates (Folder and contents)
uploads (Folder & CHMOD to 755)

This is my XuploadConfig.pm file

Code: Select all

package XUploadConfig;
use strict;
use Exporter ();
@XUploadConfig::ISA    = qw(Exporter);
@XUploadConfig::EXPORT = qw($c);
use vars qw( $c );

I also copied the following files to /web/midwestcomposite.com/htdocs/upload/

This is my upload_form2.html file after I modified address of CGI scripts:

Code: Select all

Didn't realize that all *.cgi files in the cgi-bin folder needed permissions set to 755. I set them to 755 and it works.

Someone should really mention that in the installation instructions, thanks.
