Hi,

I've just signed up for a hosting plan, here in Portugal, in a Apache web Server with Red Hat Linux as OS.
Honestly, I think I might have made a mistake: my space was configured, but nothing runs in CGI-BIN; every .pl or .cgi script that is called, either appears as text or the browser asks if we want to save it in the disk; if we call a script within CGI-BIN - from a webpage - it tell us that the "Method is not allowed" (error 405, I think ); as for the C/C++ compiled files ( no extension ), I didn't test them yet, but I have the feeling the problem will be the same.

Any clues? - I think the technical support doesn't know what's happening or what's doing...
Another thing: almost everything is chmoded 700 (CGI-BIN is chmoded 701 ) - I find it a bit unusual in a Linux OS.

This is urgent, so please give me an hand.

Kind regards,

Kepler

It sounds like they've definitely got something misconfigured. The fact that they don't know how to fix it is a bad sign. My advice is to get a refund and go somewhere else.

That's the wisest thing I ever heard today. You're 100% right.
