Running CGI scripts in Tomcat 4...not happening!!!


Hello all,

I have:

Mandrake 9.1
Apache2
Tomcat4

Installed and running.

I am now trying to run a cgi script, that has already been tested through Apache2 (so I'm sure it works), but Tomcat
is telling me something is wrong with my path. What I can't figure out is where must I modify this?!?!?!

I have already modified my web.xml where I need to uncomment the cgi servlets & mappings AND renamed the jar files:

servlets-cgi.jar
servlets-ssi.jar

Restarted Tomcat.

When I run the script via Tomcat, I get this error:

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>$Name: $</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>$Header: /home/cvs/jakarta-tomcat-4.0/catalina/src/share/org/apache/catalina/servlets/CGIServlet.java,v 1.11 2002/12/04 21:09:07 amyroh Exp $<p>

CGI script not found or not specified.

<H4>
Check the <b>HttpServletRequest
<a href="#pathInfo">pathInfo</a></b>
property to see if it is what you meant
it to be. You must specify an existant
and executable file as part of the
path-info.

work and what their environment variables
mean, please visit the <a

By the way, the script that I run is a perl script, like I said, I already made sure it runs but I'm wondering if perhaps there is an "extra" config setting that I'm missing here?

Any thoughts?

I try to run the cgi via this URL (8080 is where Tomcat is runnning)

http://MYHOST:8080/cgi-bin/upload.pl

The actual physical location of the file is:

/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.27/webapps/cgi-bin

But then an error message came back saying it couldn't find the script, and that it was looking here:

/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.27/webapps/ROOT

So I changed it to that location and I got the same error.


So what is wrong??? Please any thoughts or ideas on this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Here below is my system info:
