Permission prob running from within perl

I am attempting to run a proram from within a perl script.
using a system call...ie. system("/path/path/path/cgi-bin/hitlog/ax.cgi");
but I keep getting a
FORBIDDEN you do not have access to cgi-bin/hitlog/ax.cgi
error, even though everthing works fine if run directly.

By directly do you mean you can run it from the prompt?  Make sure that you have access for all the paths leading up to the script you want it run.  nobody needs to be able to run it

By running directly, i mean that i can run the cgi, by typing the path
i.e. http://www.whatever.com/path/path/cgi-bin/program.cgi
I can even call it from an html page ie.
<!--/path/path/cgi-bin/program.cgi-->
but from within a script??...no can do!

Most likely you have a different directory mapping.   For me my webpage mapping is:
http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/comm/domain
but my directory hieracrhy is
/space/comm/domain/cgi-bin

you need to make sure you have the correct path when you are making a system call
go into the directory and tpye pwd to find out the path your program needs to call
