Hi Abdul,

If you have a web server with Perl installed so that you can run a CGI script, you can run it locally. :)

I hope this helps1

If you are using Windows I recommend (and use):

Hi Abdul,

I use WAMP, so I'm not sure. But google might be able to help: http://www.google.com/search?q=XAMPP+couldn't+create+child+process

Good luck!

Hi Dave,

Im now using Wamp.
But i still find difficulties loading it.

I put the cg-bin and webroot folder under :
C:\wamp\www

and run it:
http://localhost/cgi-bin/artman2/admin.cgi

And i get this error:
Not Found
The requested URL /cgi-bin/artman2/admin.cgi was not found on this server.

-The file permissions are read/write as well.

Please advice.

Sometimes it can take a while to get these things working correctly.

First, try another folder besides /cgi-bin/. Sometimes cgi-bin is mapped to point to another directory. Try just http://localhost/artman2/

If that doesn't work here are our internal instructions for setting up WAMP and Perl

- Install WAMP Server
- Install ActivePerl
- Copy C:\perl\bin\perl.exe to C:\usr\bin\perl.exe
- Copy C:\perl\bin\perl.exe to C:\usr\local\bin\perl.exe
- Start > Run > "C:\perl\bin\ppm-shell"
- Type: install dbd-mysql
- Type: exit

- Open Apache Config file: C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\conf\httpd.conf
- Uncomment: AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
- Add: AddHandler cgi-script .pl
- Uncomment: AddType text/html .shtml
- Uncomment: AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
- Uncomment: LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
- Uncomment: Include conf/extra/httpd-default.conf

- Uncomment or add these lines in the <Directory "C:/wamp/www/"> block
Options All
AllowOverride All

Hope that helps!

Hi Dave,

Thanks for replying. I have tried the following but it didnt helped.

Also I couldnt find the "usr" folder on my C drive so I created the folder and pasted it manually. I hope its not having any compatibility issues with windows 7?

Its still giving me the same error as mentioned above.

Do reply.

Hi Kaiviti,

Unfortunately, we're not server admins, so we don't really have any other suggestions. Your best bet is to hit up WAMP support, as they're going to know a lot more about how to get Perl working on it than we will. Once you can get any standard CGI script to work, Article Manager should work just fine. :)
