Subject [greenstone-users] Greenstone Web library installed on a Win2003 server with IIS 6.0
I installed Greenstone Web library on a Win2003 server with IIS 6.0. I
believe
I configured everything successfully as I was able to run the program from
command-prompt.

I later opened the IIS manager and:
- created a virtual directory for gsdl(pointed to the c:program
filesgreenstone folder)
- created a virtual directory for cgi-bin(pointed to cgi-bin under
c:program
filesgreenstone folder)

I was able to browse

The GSDL home test page - http://131.128.170.239/gsdl/
The GSDL cgi-bin directory listing - http://131.128.170.239/gsdl/cgi-bin/

But I was NOT able to view'http://131.128.170.239/gsdl/cgi-bin/library.exe
It gave me a "Page Not found" error message.

Below is what my gsdlsite.cfg looks like:

-------------------------------------------
gsdlhome "C:Program FilesGreenstone"
httpprefix /gsdl
httpimg /gsdl/images
#gwcgi /cgi-bin/library
maxrequests 10000
-------------------------------------------


I think it's not a permission issue, but the server does not seem to
understand how to run library.exe. This is driving me crazy. Any help you
can give would be greatly appreciated.
