Using CGI scripts

File your CGI scripts in the "public_html" folder of your account. Make sure that you use the correct administrative authorization for the folders/scripts.

Your account type must be able to support CGI scripts. To check if your account supports them, please see our product matrix. (Scroll down to 'Developer features', click on it, and then look for 'CGI interface i.a. Perl, Python, Ruby'.)

Which pathname do I need to enter in Perl scripts to access other files?

Enter the full pathname. For example:

/usr/www/users/FTP_LOGIN/FILE_PATH_AND_NAME

You need to replace the FTPLOGIN with the FTP login name of the account. And you need to replace FILEPATHANDNAME with the pathname of the correct file.
