So I volunteered to design a dynamic flash website without any real skills to further the ‘dynamic’ side of things. The flash I’ve got all figured out, but I need help building a basic cgi (I assume… better way?) page to save a text file to the server. IE, a textbox that the news can be typed in to with a button that submits it and saves it to whatever.txt to be accessed by the flash file.
I found a prebuilt one, but I couldn’t for the life of me make it work, even with the knowledge of dreamhost’s screwy cgi permissions. I’d like to just set this in a htaccess-ed directory so that the admin can simply use his password and update it.
