I really need help. I have been trying to create CGI scripts for a default directory to my website. Basically, I have a Linux based web hosting site, created a domain name and my page reads 'directory has no index file.' The hosting site doesn't provide that type of support. I have tried the basic files cgi, pl, and py and the best that I have accomplished is displaying the output online, but not creating the default file. I am missing something but I don't know what.
I am a newbie to server side programming, as in three days newbie. I have tried every softwhere-side trick I can think of to do this, including using a remote ftp to try create a shell scripts. That did not work. I can't figure out how to chmod on the SSL layer in linux.
I don't understand how this works. Can someone please provide some help with the code I would need to use to make this work?
There are a full list of modules available on the server. I just don't know how to use them. Everything I have been finding on the internet are the files to download Perl which I can't use. I just need to code to write to my /cgi-bin/ to make my site work.
