Here is the situation:
I'm updating an old perl/cgi shopping cart system that we used to use on our site. I'm updating it because it has a special feature built into it that we want to use in our current set up.
I know pretty much nothing about perl (or files in the cgi-bin for that matter) but I've managed to get the pages generated by perl to look like the rest of our site...with one exception. I can't get any of the SSI to work!
The perl code calls an html template which resides in the cgi bin with the perl programs. The template acts as a "shell" for the perl code if you will.
I've tried just about every combination on calling the include that I can think of (virtual, file, ../, / etc..) but I just can't get it to show any of the includes. I then tried moving the template to the root folder and changing the template file location in the perl code to the template file in the root folder. Nope! Although I can see the includes if I just manually bring the page up (www.site.com/template.html).
I've also tried putting the include files in the cgi-bin in the same folder as the template file but that doesn't seem to work either.
Am I beating my head against a door that won't open? Am I missing something simple?
I do apologize, I'm not real familiar with perl or working with files in the cgi-bin.
Any help is appreciated.
