Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i am running fedora core 1
;apt-get install httpd'
'apt-get install perl'
'apr-get install perl-DBI'
it setup folders in /var/www/ where there is a /html /cgi-bin folders
i placed a .cgi file in the /cgi-bin/ folder and ensured that the file pointed to the installation of perl, made sure that both the folder and file where CHMODed to 755 (even 777 to be sure). And i still am getting a Internal server Error (500).
I downloaded "redhat-config-httpd" program to try and edit my config file through a GUI, i thought i had set the configuration in that program to allow for cgi-scripts to be ran in the /var/www/cgi-bin folder but it still does not work.
Yes i did try to re-start the server so i know that the changes i made are in effect.
please please can someone help me? i've been sitting here tinkering trying to make it work for 4 and a half hours straight and have been scouring the internet to try and see if i can get help but nothings come up.
I would give a link to my website but i am behind a university firewall and do not have a static IP accessable from the outside.
ok, con someone please help me? i know it has to be my config file. When in the terminal i type "perl perl_test.cgi" my perl test file runs just fine. However when from a browser on my laptop i type in my local address: http://10.65.0.xx/cgi-bin/perl_test.cgi i get an internal server error. If i just type in http://10.655.0.xx/perl_test.cgi it just shows all the code of the perl file.
