Which URL to trigger this CGI ?

I wrote a CGI in perl a long ago (never wrote perl script for ten years ;-). It is  named "check.cgi" in the www/cgi-bin directory (i.e. www/cgi-bin/check.cgi)

It starts as follows:

use strict;
use CGI;
our $mailprog        = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t";
our $respond         = "";
our $upto            = "";
our $data            = '';
our $db              = '';

# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# declare base
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
our @token;
our $q  = new CGI;
our %in = $q->Vars;
our %gp;

# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# get the inputs
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
our $dn       =lc($in{'dn'       }) || ''         ;
our $orig     =lc($in{'orig'     }) || ''         ;
our $tld      =lc($in{'tld'      }) || ''         ;

Open in new window


Which URL should be entered to trigger it : "http://abc.de/...."  what the "...." should be ?

Thanks a lot !

Whatever URL will trigger this CGI program will be determined by your Apache config.

Look for references related to ScriptAlias or however you have CGI invocation setup for your Apache config.

I am sorry, but I do not understand ? May be I was not clear enough ? I reviewed the end of the question. My apache works with cgi's.

You asked, "Which URL should be entered to trigger it" + then answer is...

Your Apache config file determines this.

Might be any of the following...

The answer lies in your Apache config for the host serving your CGI script.
