Why am I Getting File Not Found When Executing My CGI?
Why am I seeing "File Not Found" or "No Such File or Directory" when executing my CGI script?
This is usually the result of CGI scripts being uploaded the wrong way. First, verify the path you're using is correct; remember that directories and files are case-sensitive. A misspelled, but otherwise correct path would fail with a "404" error.
Also, verify your script has been uploaded in "ASCII" mode. This is used for all text-based uploads. Binary is for image files, zip files, and other non-text files.
Your FTP program will typically use "Automatic" and determine on it's own what to use, however in some cases it cannot determine this properly, in which case you'll have to manually set the mode. Please refer to your FTP program's documentation for assistance changing that.
