    Problem with IIS and Perl setup: Windows Server 2003

    I know my perl scripts worked in the past but I rebuilt server and am not sure where things belong in directory structure.
    1. Perl code. Can it be under the C drive or should it be under my website?
    2. Scripts that call perl - should they be under the C drive or under the website

    ie. this is how I have it set up but it doesn't work right. Should the scripts directory be up at the C level
    c:
    Bin
    Perl
    other ...
    Inetpub
    .....wwwroot
    ..............images
    ..............Scripts (perl routines)
    ..............HTML files
    .....ftproot

    That set up looks OK, but you need to tell IIS where the Perl executables reside and how to run Perl scripts. Normally this would be done with the Perl install program and you would then copy your scripts into the appropriate directory.

    yes, even tried a different version of perl but nothing different. Both installs claim you don't have to run any scripts after installing from a .msi file. For some reason I think it has to do with where perl is located and were the scripts that the website runs are
