We do not allow any type of program that stays resident in memory or listens to a port number or forks multiple processes, because of the shared nature of the server.
We do not allow the use of flat file database driven forums such as UBB or YABB bulletin boards. Use of these boards for large or very active forums, results in system performance degradation, and cannot be allowed in our shared server environment. We sug...

We have a collection of CGI scripts that are already pre-installed on your hosting account. Some of these CGI scripts include: A hit counter, web clock, Guestbook, FormMail, Search Site and more! You can find these scripts within your control panel.
You can debug Perl CGI Scripts with the following list of things to check for first in your CGI Scripts: Is your first line correct? The first line of your script must tell the Web Server where to look for the Perl Interpretter. On most servers it shoul...
Here is an example of what is probably the most basic CGI Script in perl: #!/usr/bin/perl # It's always a good idea to use the strict pragma while developing # Perl code, it makes Perl warn about dangerous code use strict; # We're also going to include ...
If you have any files or folders that were created by a cgi script running on your account, you will be unable to modify or delete these files because they were created by the user 'nobody' (the webservers itself). To get these files deleted please send i...
There are many different possibilities. If you have a problem, misconfiguration, or syntax error in you script, you will probably be able to find it by checking your error logs which can be found in your your control panel under "Statistics -> Sho...

A 403 Forbidden error occurs when the web server finds itself with insufficient permissions to run your script.   Make sure you have given the script proper permissions. In SSH, this is accomplished with: chmod 755 scriptname.cgi   If you ar...
CGI scripts need to be set executable. You need to change the mode, or permissions, of your programs with your FTP program, and make them 755, or rwxr-xr-x.   Note: A lot of scripts out there will tell you need to make them 775 or even 777. This is...
Make sure when you upload the CGI file DO NOT upload in binary mode, instead use ASCII mode. Uploading in binary will cause the server not to recognize the scripts as executables. Most FTP clients will upload .pl or .cgi files in binary mode by default so...
