    Setting up a shopping cart

    I have set up a guestbook before and altered settings in cgi-bin. Now I am trying something a little harder (a shopping cart for http://www.atsbargains.com) and I have hit a wall trying to figure out this instruction:

    "Set the permissions of the cart.cgi and cartmanager.cgi script to rwxr_x_r_x."

    Could someone break this down in simpler language for me?

    These are the access properties of the files.
    Something along the lines of read-write_execute-read_execute_read_execute.

    That's probably not correct, but you get the gist.

    You should investigate the CHMOD command to set the properties in a Unix environment, or perhaps your FTP client will give you the option to set properties through it's GUI.

    Actually, I'm feeling kind so I went and looked it up

    This Page says that the file properties you mention equate to "CHMOD 755".


    Hope that helps,

    Great job!

    Thanks a million!

    CHMOD 755 makes more sense to me. I have used that command before.

    Great job!
