Installing Matt's Guestbook Script

Remember: Techtrade Internet Services makes the guestbook script by Matt Wright available for current Techtrade Internet Services customers pre-configured! Just visit The Personal Control Panel for more information.

Visit Matt's Guestbook Readme for a comprehensive explanation on how to install his guestbook on your account.

It is recommended that you create a new directory in your public_html directory named "guestbook" and place your HTML files for this guestbook there. The most common problem users encounter with this script are related permissions . Be sure to chmod the guestbook directory to 644. Also chmod your guestbook.html and guestlog.html to 644.

You must rename all the CGI files with .pl extensions to .cgi files. Therefore, guestbook.pl should be saved on the server as guestbook.cgi. Place the guestbook.cgi script in your cgi-local directory and chmod 755.

If you are still having problems, check the paths in your script. For example, look at your guestbook.cgi file and make sure you set $guestbookreal to /home/your_userid/public_html/guestbook/guestbook.html. Now check the rest of your variables.

Make sure your addguest.html call this script properly. For example, the line that says:

<form method=POST action="http://your.host.com/cgi-bin/guestbook.pl">

should be changed to point to your guestbook.cgi script in your cgi-local directory.

For additional trouble shooting, refer to Matt's Guestbook FAQ.

$basedir = "/home/your_userid/public_html/ranimages"
