Hi there,

I am porting some software fron RedHat to Mandrake. The problem I am having is that I cannot run perl via Apache i.e. the application has a web front end and when I enter I get the nice message "Forbidden - you don't have access to <directory>/script.pl

Now I have been changing to commonhttp.conf file and adding ExecCGI but I still cannot get it to go. Have searched this here internet thing and can't find anything about resolving this problem (other than what I am already doing). ?:|

Sounds to me that Mandrake might have different default locations for your web stuff? Is the www document root the same for RH and Mandrake?

For RedHat the DocumentRoot is at "/var/www/html"
