I have been trying to load up a classified ad script.
all seems well, xfered appropriate files seemingly ascii, proper names and permissions.
Script runs fine, however cannot get test ad to post. My only concern and lack of understanding are instructions in the install text about setting one variable.
This is in the install Text
If the ad didn't show up, then the problem is related to either your setting for the $classdir variable, or to a permissions problem. First, verify that your setting for the $classdir variable points to the full internal server path (not a URL) to the "classifieds" directory that you created outside of your cgi-bin for the storage of the graphics files, the HTML pages created by the program, and the ads.counter file. If you don't know the full internal server path to this directory, you may need to ask your server admin or web hosting company for this value.
This is what is in the script
$classdir should point to the full server path of the new directory that you created
for this program where the ads.counter file and the HTML pages for the ads will be
stored. For Unix servers, this new directory should have its permissions set to 777.
For Windows NT users, this should point to the full server path to this directory,
beginning with the drive letter and using forward slashes instead of backslashes,
such as "d:/InetPub/wwwroot/ads".
$classdir = "/usr/www/users/you/classifieds";
I am unsure if this is pointing to the directory I created for the graphics and html files the program uses.
