Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at
dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now.
Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related.
I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress
(and you can read about that here).
Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the
new FreeBSD Diary website.
Perl scripts that appear in your browser7 January 2000
Quite some time ago I added a uptime script to
one of my web pages. Someone wrote in
saying that when they used the script, the script contents appeared in their browser
instead of the uptime results. At the time, I had no idea what the problem was.
Now I do.
If you follow the directions for the uptime script
and then browse to your code, but find that you see this on your browser:
$query = new CGI;
then I'll bet that you browsed to your website without using a virtual host. I'll
bet you browsed to the machine first. Then into a directory which contained your
script. That is what causes the problem. Use a URL instead.
