Hope I'm in the right place for this question and excuse my ingnorance in this area (servers & cgi).

My client has a Domino server and our company generally utilises asp for database integration. We need to integrate a simple Microsoft Access database into a web project on this server. I am wondering what werver side technology we should be looking at for this on a lotus domino server and how the client should make this technology active?

Is cgi support built in and how is it activated, etc???

TIA

woosey,
this question seems to have been ignored for some reason so i shall answer it for you.

step 1:  Do u have perl?

on the command prompt type perl -v.

step 2: where is Perl
if on unix type which perl?
if on windows find where the perl.exe file is

usually if you have perl, which you will have if step 1 was sucessful it will be in /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin etc.

step 3:
check your server configuration for cgi entries.  Typically the server file will tell you where the cgi-bin is located:

step 4:
place the following script in the cgi-bin and make sure the first line is the same location as the perl executable. As the first line in a cgiscript is typically the path to the program it is executing -  hence in the example below perl is located on /usr/bin/perl.  If you have a windows server installation, perl may actually be located at C:\usr\bin\perl but this is seen as the same path as the above.


step 5:
run the script in the browser ie localhost/cgi-bin/script.pl

step 5:
report back -= let me know how u got on.

regards Peewee


#!/usr/bin/perl
##
##  printenv -- demo CGI program which just prints its environment
##

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
foreach $var (sort(keys(%ENV))) {
    $val = $ENV{$var};
    $val =~ s|\n|\\n|g;
    $val =~ s|"|\\"|g;
    print "${var}=\"${val}\"\n";
}
