Access Numbers & Connection Configuration
Yes. CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is a specification for transferring information between a Web server and a CGI program. CGI programs are one of the most common ways for Web servers to interact dynamically with users. For instance, a Web page that has a form on it can use a CGI program to process the form's data once it's submitted. All of our customers have access to the generic scripts which handle the most common CGI tasks. Custom scripts are available for our Commercial Webhosting Services.
Seanet provides scripts to handle the following tasks:
Some guestbook scripts and other CGI tools require that a file have world writable access. In order to accomplish this, you'll need to explore the capabilities of your FTP client software. Most software has a selection of tools that allow you to change a file's mode. This may be under a
chmod command or a section of commands referred to collectively as UNIX commands.
In order to make a file world writable, the mode should be set to
766. In order to make a file non-world writable, the mode should be set to
755. (It's generally easier to use the check boxes which most FTP clients use rather than typing in the numeric mode.)
Seanet does not provide technical support for CGI nor do we provide technical support for other scripting/HTML or design oriented subjects.
