Search HTML on CDROM?
Posted on 2000-04-12
I have recently created a "Web Site" on CDROM (not posted on any www server). The reason is: This CD manages a database of photographs and graphic files, and needs to be viewed and referenced by coworkers who have no knowledge of how to deal with JPEG images or may not have Graphic Software on their computers. This CD allows any user with a web browser to view these images.
My question is: I need to incorporate CGI scripts for a search engine and form processing. But all the information I can find about CGI scripting says that they are run by the web server! I really don't have a server since my users will be accessing the HTML from the CD-Rom drive. Will CGI scripts run from the CD-ROM? Is there a simpler way? Maybe I am way out in left field. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance for your help!
