Message Board stopped

#1

Let me start by saying I have no idea what to do when it comes to scripting. Basically a few days ago my board was fine, I have had it up for literally years. Now it wont load. I get the “redirection limit exceed error” in firefox, “cannot find server” in IE, my error log is giving me the “Permission denied: exec of /home/dkradio1/lunaticradio.com/cgi-bin/board/cutecast.pl failed”. I am competley at a loss. Below is the CGI scirpt for the board…

It’s working just fine for me - seems like it was some kind of temporary error with the server.

yes, for some reason, you can see that first page, but then once u try to log in it locks up, and then from that point foward you cannot even get to the first initlal page. Dreamhost wrote me back saying that the “script is broken and It keeps assigning new sessions”. I don’t know what that means. All I do know is about 4 days ago this was working totaly fine. And all of a sudden I as well as anyone who emails me saying they cannot get on the board (about 25 emails a day).
