What path should I use to reference my
It is always best to reference scripts, as well as HTMLs, relative to your home directory. For example:
Please note that there is noform method="post" action="my-script.cgi"
form method="post" action="my-bin-dir/my-script.cgi"
forward slashat the beginning of the path.
There are times when a script requires the absolute path to a file. What that path is depends on the machine you are on and the kind of account you have. If you have a personal web account, use this:/var/home/<FIRST LETTER OF USERNAME>/<SECOND LETTER OF USERNAME>/username/So for example if your username is "bobdobbs", and you're specifying the path to a fil e called "myscript.cgi" in your "public_html" directory, the path would be so:/var/home/b/o/bobdobbs/public_html/myscript.cgiIf you have a Virtual Web Hosting account (with your own domain name, à la "www.m ydomain.com"), then the path is simply:/var/domain/<YOUR DOMAIN NAME>/(Make sure to include the "www"). The forward slash is required in both of these cases as it needs to reference the
machine's root directory.
