Hi ferrycode,

I'm sorry you're having trouble running your Perl script. Perl scripts should be uploaded to your cgi-bin. Scripts that you store in the cgi-bin should have file permissions set to 755, so the script you have uploaded already has the correct file permissions set.
When adding the script tag to your site file(s) make sure you are using the full path to the script (including the cgi-bin folder in the pat).

If you have any additional questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Regards,

Christi N.
