hi all

I made a simple CGI Application with delphi,
sample.exe

then I upload it to my domain(redhat linux) cgi-bin then I chmod the file to 755 and typed
http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/sample.exe/say

an error page 500 appears with internal server error, I tried the application on another server and it worked good, why it's not working on my domain..?

thanx

a Delphi binary will never work in any linux environment...
only Kylix binaries will work there...

recompile the application with Kylix..

hi,

you need a host that supports custom compiled cgi/isapi apps.
the majority of hosts DONT mainly for security reasons as a compiled cgi could have backdoors into the server etc ,it is in a "out of control" state whereas something more commonly supported like a cgi perl script or asp/php etc has to be compiled by the hosting server therefore what it has access too can be controlled .


>>I tried the application on other server with linux too and worked good..

that would have been pure lucky that they support it.
see here for one such host:

and also a quick search on google gives a few:
