What webserver are you running? And generally crawling around doesnt make a
webserver too happy.. it runs as the user nobody (I'm assuming), so if it
tries to enter a directory that does not have rwxr-xr-x permissions, it
cant. Try this:
Check the output. I'm pretty sure youre going to see perl spit back a
permissions problem. This is just a handy way of debugging a cgi script
too, heh, you dont know how many times I've had a script not work because of
a permissions problem that I didnt realize until I executed it as manually
as user nobody (or whatever user the webserver runs as).
Also, in case you havent used require much... make sure the require'd file
ends with a '1;'. Otherwise require dumps to an error (has to do with
return values). I think its silly, but I guess I'm not Alan Cox. ;)

This may be a moron question, but I can't seem to get it to work.
I've got two CGI's
that really live on my server here
I want each of them to read in subroutines and settings from a single
So, in each of those two cgi's I've got this line
I can't find any documentation that says I can crawl around my file
this using require, but nothing that says I can't either.
Nonetheless, I'm getting a server error. Is this a problem with my
with my server?
p.s. I couldn't get it to work with DO or USE either, though I know much
