am I able to run cgi scripts such as WWWBoard off my computer for offline testing....

if so what would be the current path for it?

I'd appreciate in suggestions or what not, thanks!

go to www.fox-hunt.net and download foxServe. Which is an apache/php/mysql bundle.

Next go to activestate.com and download perl (if your on Win).

Next RTFM and install the stuff.

Then you need to configure the script that matt provides, via his instructions.

Good luck,

I do this all the time -

1. Download the Apache binary (windoze or linux or mac)

2. Unzip and run the setup.

3. configure the server http.conf file for CGI, which amounts
to just un-commenting out all ines in the text file that have
"CGI" in them.

4. Put your script in the cgi-bin directory of the Apache web tree,
and run the server - you should be able to test your script by
typing "http://localhost/cgi-bin/myscript.cgi"

5. There is no "5." - other than making sure you have Perl on your
system.

email me if you need help...
