Drupal Has Hijacked My Domain

546 Views
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Dedicated server with Drupal and PerlDesk installed. Latest versions of both. Clean URLs is running on Drupal and oddly enough, turning it off and dumping my cache doesn't fix this issue.

Drupal is breaking the queries that PerlDesk makes via the URL. For example:

http://www.domain.com/cgi-bin/support/pdesk.cgi?do=register goes to a Drupal 404. pdesk.cgi by itself in the URL works but the software uses the query strings to run so it's 100% useless at the moment. I don't know what further information is needed but I have broken my .htaccess file several times trying to figure this out.

There is no content with a url alias of support.

Any insight or direction would be appreciated.
