My CGI scripts does not work

The most common problem when a CGI script not works is that you have uploaded it through the binary mode in your FTP client and the script has Windows linefeeds (CRLF) instead of Unix linefeeds (LF) which is required for the script to work.

To fix this, configure your FTP client to upload the files in text mode and the FTP server will convert the line breaks automatically.

Note that our support does not cover script related problems that is not caused by one of our servers or similar, and we are unable to assist you with your programming.

If you have any problem with a script and want us to have a look at it, send the path to the script, a brief explanation of what you are trying to do and if you get an error messages to us.
