Are you using Greenstone 2.83? The problem you mention sounds related to
a known issue with version 2.83 (and has been fixed for the next release).

The workaround for Greenstone 2.83 has been described by Diego Spano on
the mailing list, which I am copying below.

Write back if any issues or questions remain,

I think that if you start the web server with gs2-server.bat, will will
always get that error. Try using "gsicontrol.bat". This batch file allows
you many things: change port number, start and stop the Apache web server
bundled with GS, etc. It accepts many parameters like:


So, try the following:

1- In a command window, go to Greenstone install folder and run setup.bat.
2- Then run "gsicontrol.bat set-port". It will ask for a port number. Use
3333 (just to avoid conflicting with standard ports).
3- Now run "gsicontrol.bat web-start". It will run Apache web server.
4- In Internet Explorer write: "http://localhost:3333". It has to show the
message "It works" indicating that Apache is running.
5- Write "http://localhost:3333/greenstone/cgi-bin/library.cgi". It has to
show Greenstone main page.

Hope this helps!
