Hay. Here is a stupid person. I want to put a forum on my website. I've activated CGI and MySQL, I down loaded the files from the free forum people, uploaded them to htdocs and my web site but huh? I'm told that I have to upload them to my CGI bim at crofters. Can any one take pity on a poor duh brain and let me know how I do this. I don't know CGI commands from apples and if I could do it through ftp I would be happy. OK that's me.
This from a reasonably new newbie. Get yourself an FTP programme such as WSFTP. To send files to the cgi server, you need to show crofters.force9.net in the box, add your username and password. It is similar to uploading to htdocs but you may need to set permissions. The instructions which came with your script should tell you what they are. To change the permissions, right click on the file and choose chmod, then tick the boxes for what you want.
