I am  using my own server(s)
My TWIG server is running by itself on a windows XP Home Edition
My Web server is on the same network and is running Fedora Core 5 with Apache Web server.
If necessary, I can set up web service on the XP box to mak ethis work and link to it from the main site. I would prefer to host the pages on my web server, and could pull the files from the XP machine when they have been made.
 
Thanks,

Personally, I hate having to run two web servers when one should do. If I were you, I would modify the scores.bat file so that instead of copying files to a local directory, it used FTP to transfer the files over to your Fedora box. Then you could host all of the information on your Fedora/Apache web server and not have to worry about a web server on your XP box. You could also use Samba to acheive this if you wanted to mess with that nightmare. FTP would be much more simple.

Another reason to do this is that the version of IIS that comes with XP Home Edition will only allow 10 concurrent users. Since the pages have autorefresh enabled, it would be pretty easy for users to leave the window open and eat up your 10 connections. Fedora does not have that limitation.

Hope that helps,

Don

The HTM files are just templates. I guess I need to look at your page in IE, view the source and see what the header it generates is and make you a file that does the same and see if it makes a difference.


I did notice that the credits blurb:

TradeWars 2002 Web Stats 1.2e
Freeware by The Mushroom Cloud BBS!
Daily log parser by Xentropy

appears after the </html> tag. Since the CGI script generates that, I can't remove it to see if that is what it causing the problem.

Also, I did a little more experimenting with my problem. If I open the page (I'm using twactive.cgi as my test) in Opera I see raw code. So, I figured there must be a problem with the code. I did a 'view source' and saved the source as a .htm file. I then pulled that up in Opera and it rendered perfectly. So, this may actually be a problem with the way Apache is handling the CGI data. IIS totally tanked with it and I haven't messed with XITAMI yet so I'll keep you posted.

Thanks,

Don

Well, the best I can get out of XITAMI is:

Internal error: your request was unsuccessful
Cannot create CGI process - program not found

and that is for IE/Opera/Firefox. So, I apparently haven't got XITAMI handling CGI right. It was worth a shot though

Do you have the path to perl @ the top of the script? Are the apache mime types set to parse .cgi? Is it in the cgi-bin directory? Are the chmod settings correct?

Just thought I would post a quick note saying I found the problem with Opera/Firefox on my web pages. It turns out that Apache sets the default data type for CGI output to text/plain instead of text/html. IE will render HTML even in plain text, whereas Opera/Firefox does not. I just changed the default data type for CGI output to text/html and everything works fine now.

Hey everyone. This is Darknight. Lost my old domain and email and cannot log in to that account anymore.

Does anyone have a copy of the last version of TWWS (Trade Wars Web Stats?) I do not have it any longer, was millions of years ago. LOL. Looking to rewrite it in a more modern language and make it easier for everyone to use, but would like to have the template code to work from.

Thanks.

Welcome back, I do not know what that is, but
if you join Crunchers Discord and ask there in the Taven, someone may have an answer for you.
