Hi Michael thanks for the reply. I don't see anything out of the ordinary
in that file. Here are the settings you had mentioned ...

gsdlhome "/home/cmidocs/public_www/gsdl"
httpprefix /gsdl
httpimg /gsdl/images
maxrequests 10000

I noticed that there are only 3 files in the
/home/cmidocs/public_www/cgi-bin folder (gsdlsite.cfg, library, oaiserver)
while the rest are in /home/cmidocs/public_www/gsdl/cgi-bin (,, resdresults.cgi, trackreport.cgi, getior,,
savereport.cgi, Is this correct?

Thanks again,

This sounds like something is wrong in the Greenstone
"cgi-bin/gsdlsite.cfg" file -- check that the "gsdlhome", "httpprefix"
and "httpimg" settings are correct.
