Hi all,

I am going out of my mind trying to get a .htaccess file working

1) can you use ../../ when specifying the authuserfile?

2) how do you find out your exact server path to use after the authuserfile? I am with Easily.co.uk

3) could someone attach an actual file so I can see the exact spacing and carriage returns (I think I read somewhere that it all has to be on one line)

4) I read in windows xp help file, that when using xp for ftp it defaults to ASCii. Is this true?

5) I have downloaded Apachie but am not sure how to enter the commands to generate the password files. Is there a step by step guide for wooden heads like myself?

6) Can I use the various password / username generators on the web as aposed to Apachie for Easly.co.uk?

Hope you can help,

Thanks in advance,

Dom..........

I'm not sure, Possibly

It should be in a FAQ/userguide available at easily
(Depending on which server you are on, it is listed in one of these 3 pages:
http://easily.co.uk/index.php3?exe=faq&sb=n&do=d&group_id=5&id=215
http://easily.co.uk/index.php3?exe=faq&sb=n&do=d&group_id=5&id=216
http://easily.co.uk/index.php3?exe=faq&sb=n&do=d&group_id=5&id=217

Yes, the username:pass need to be on one line

Again, I'm, not too sure, but for .htpasswd and .htaccess files I don't think it matters (I think they should be uploaded as ascii anyway).

I don't think the htpasswd generator is a part of apache, but rather a part of *nix operating systems.

Yes, an htpasswd generator is an htpasswd generator anywhere Smile
However, depending on how the easily one works, it may be best to keep using that one,

Thank you so much for your help,

You have been more help than the service provider!

I knew i was using the wrong path but didn't know what to use. I was supplied with the path from another server!!!!!!! I had no idea which server i was on or if they had multiple servers.

It took three days when it could have taken 1/2 hour with the correct information..

Works now,

Thanks again,

Dom Wink

Hi Miguel,

I wonder if you can help me again. It is another question about Easily.co.uk. You seem to be more helpful than their help desk so here it goes:

I appear to be using the Plesk server as the directory path worked on the .htaccess files.

They specify #!usr/bin/perl -- on one of the links that you have supplied me with:

http://easily.co.uk/index.php3?exe=faq&sb=n&do=d&group_id=5&id=217


1) Do you need to include the -- after perl word or is it just #!usr/bin/perl

2) Can I use cgi scripts outside of the cgi-bin ore do they have to be placed in the cgi-bin?

3) What about file permissions on this server would this stop cgi scripts from working?

4) I am new to cgi and was wondering if there is any good step by step guides for setting up various cgi scripts using perl and php on a server.

5) in your reply how did you place my questions in boxes?

Thanks in advance,

Dom

No, I don't believe you do. (Tho if someone for who perl works could double check this for me).

Since you can make .htaccess files, you can use an .htaccess file to run cgi scripts outside the cgi-bin
[code]Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

Perhaps. CGI scripts should be CHMODd to 755 under PLESK

Dunno, perl doesn't like me, so doesn't work for me

I used the [ quote] [ /quote] tags (without spaces of course)

You'll need to use an ftp client (such as www.smartftp.com <= is free and very good), then take a look at this article => http://www.4webhelp.net/tutorials/misc/chmod.php

No, I don't use easily

You can also find some information more specific to SmartFTP at the following address:

http://www.4webhelp.net/chmod/smartftp.html

(Yes, these CHMOD tutorials never got published!)
