tracking cgi script

I have a little cgi script that will send to my email address when I person goes into my web page



#!/bin/usr/bin
    # set this to the location of your server's mail program
    # (obtain this info from your hosting provider)
    $mailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail-t-i';
    # set this to your email address
    $email = 'sales@xxxxx.com';
    # to use this script, add the following html
    # tag to whichever page you want to track:
    #
    #<img src="/cgi-bin/tracker.cgi" width="0" height="0">


I have the permission set at 755

When I go into my web site it goes to
pages/ home.htm
The tracker.cgi files is in the pages folder set at 755
and I have with in the home.htm
<img src="/cgi-bin/pages/ tracker.cgi" width="0" height="0">



Put can not seem to get it to work.

Iam not sure what I am doing wrong here.

Try width="1" height="1".  I think some browsers take 0/0 to mean it doesn't exist.  In addition, if it is really in "/cgi-bin/tracker.cgi", why are you putting "/cgi-bin/pages/ tracker.cgi" in the "home.htm" file?

You're welcome.  We had a question once where somebody put width="0" height="0" and they just couldn't get it to work.  I have also noticed that all the tracking images are width="1" height="1" so I figured that meant something because I'm sure they'd put width="0" height="0" if it worked.
