I'm sure some of you have done this before. What do I put for "path to
perl" in the top of my Ultimate Bulletin Board cgi script? I am playing
with this demo in anticipation of putting up real ones for use as sign up
sheets for  certain organizations.

I pretty much have all the files in the right place in the cgi-bin folder
but that path to perl thing.....I had no idea if that should be changed
and to what.

Then, there was a  Members folder that went into the cgi-bin, and another
folder called UBB that you were to create and put another file into..
(Can't remember which at this point) Sometimes the directions are not
clear about what directory things go in, but the final URL should look
something like this example:

Of course, right now even tho permissions have been set liberally, I get
server misconfig error..
Any help?
