Q:
I am new to cgi-biin scripts and I have placed one on my site....when i
fill out my funform and subitmit it..a yahoo page coomes up ..."The
requested method POST is not allowed for the URL
/persianquest/cgi-bin/persianquest.html"
Now is this within my script or yahoo? Thank you.
A:
It seems to me that you want to run a program putting it into a directory
named cgi-bin. However a directory named cgi-bin does not neccessaryly
mean that the files in that directory are programs or scripts to be
executed. Read the instructions of Yahoo how to place cgi scripts on the
server if it is allowed at all. I do not know.

Regards,
Peter
