Hello,
i have some problems with cgi on direct admin.

Some script require a cgi library don't installed on direct admin.

I have other servers with Plesk and Cpanel and this scripts work good.

Is possible install other cgi library on direct admin?

Go into shell and run the script

cd /path/to/script
./script.cgi

if you can report the error output there it will help us determine your problem / what modules need installing

to install "CGI" (cgi.pm errors)

Code:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
Code:
cpan> install CGI
That will install the CGI bundle for you (CGI and a few CGI::* modules)

I have try to execute : perl -MCPAN -e shell
and have found errors : Can't locate Carp.pm in @INC ...

Ths should get you the cgi::* modules and CGI

wget http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/CGI/CGI.pm-3.04.tar.gz
tar -zxvf CGI.pm-3.04.tar.gz
cd CGI*

Hello,

Does anyone know which package carp.pm comes with? Isn't is just the base package of perl? ... if it is, then yes, a reinstall of perl would work... but your method of doing that would be up to you... Either download/compile the whole thing from scratch, or try to find an rpm to do it for you.

We have CARP, and the CGI bundle included on all of our images, although i know the CGI bundle is one that is not included as default with perl - so the images used on our servers are obviously not the default bundles.

Carp.pm I assume should come with CARP, although I cant find the CARP source module on its own!

However, in the documentation:

CGI scripts have a nasty habit of leaving warning messages in the error logs that are neither time stamped nor fully identified. Tracking down the script that caused the error is a pain. This fixes that. Replace the usual

use Carp;

with

use CGI::Carp



Now CGI::Carp is bundled with the CGI package (CGI.pm) and looks like it may be an alternative.

Its easy enough to reinstall the RPM so it may be worth a try anyway... however if you have a standard install currently its more than likely not perl itself...

Have you tried installing the CGI bundle from source?

I have order a server on a webhosting company.
They have installed Direct Admin for me.

I don't know how to install cgi.

I have only load cgi script on my server and too many works bad.

I have request assistance on support of my webhosting but they don't are expert for cgi problems :(

You are expert? I have need to restore the cgi library for use every cgi script without problems.
Is possible request you a cgi restore for pay?
I have a paypal account for paying you.

If it possible please write me. I have need to use cgi on my server.

Check permissions and ownership

Hi Secretman,
Just wondering if when installing the scripts on DA did you set
the correct permisions?
Also if you have not checked make sure that the files are owned
by your user name. (example) If your direct admin login name is admin then the files should be owned by admin.
If you need help on how to change the ownership with chown then let me know. I have uploaded a PHP script using my admin ftp account and unzipped it using my admin account in SSH and for some reasone the files were all owned by root.

Good Luck -Jason :D

This is a cgi library lacks problem.

Permission are correct.

Direct Admin is a bad control panel for cgi. Direct Admin install cgi very bad!

Its a standard Perl install - Some very highly used modules such as CGI aren't packaged with it... what DA could do is install the modules, howevever if you already have them theres no need (and itwill only come out with errors unless it checks for files firtsly)

I just checked all of our servers and have all the highly used modules etc since its on our image (redhat 9 with no DA installed(the image))

Cpan also works fine which basically shows its not DA but rather the default system ;)

Again, have you tried installing the cgi.pm source?

To Confirm:

it's standard in Perl 5.003 and up

rpm -qa | grep "perl"
