I can add something to this thread.

Go into IIS,
1) create a web site for Greenstone
2) point the default directory to where you have greenstone
installed (in my case d:programsgsdl. I reinstalled GS into d:programs
because the space in "d:program files" was making IMagePlus call to
imagemagick's convert program nuts.)
3) go to the cgi-bin directory and set the Execute permissions to
'Scripts and Executables'. The default is 'Scripts Only'.
4) comment out the gsdlhome and httprepfix variables in the
gsdlsite.cfg file

#gsdlhome "D:Programsgsdl"
#httpprefix /gsdl
httpimg images
gwcgi cgi-binlibrary
maxrequests 10000

5) stop and start the greenstone web site in IIS.

After that I was fine except I couldn't see the greenstone menu
images because the packages kept looking for them in
d:programsgsdlgsdlimages instead of d:programsgsdlimages. Instead of
fighting with the thing I copied the images tree to gsdlimages. It worked.
I know when I beat.

Good Luck, Hope that helps a little.

Here is what we have so far as we are still trying to get Greenstone to
display images.

As John McP suggested previously, you probably need to edit your
gsdlcgi-bingsdlsite.cfg file.

When you say that after clicking any link you get a "page not found" error,
what does the URL in the location bar of your browser look like after
clicking the link? It should look like
http://<my server name>.<my domain name>/gsdl/cgi-bin/library?...... If it
doesn't (for example, if the "gsdl", "cgi-bin", or "library" parts are
missing) then there's a problem in your configuration, probably in
gsdlsite.cfg.

You might also try using http://.../gsdl/cgi-bin/library.exe as I have a
vague recollection of the ".exe" being required by IIS. I don't have IIS
installed right now but have used it in the past without any problems.

Stefan.

Anybody on this mailing list using the Web library on a IIS5.0/Win2000

Good morning,

I have installed the Greenstone Web library on a Win2000 server SP3
with IIS 5.0.
I have defined cgi-bin and gsdl as virtual folder under IIS.

I can access the main page of Greenstone with the URL:
http: // <my server name>.<my domain name>/gsdl/cgi-bin/library

but after, if I click on any of the link on this main page, I got the
following error
message:
"the page is not found".

Any idea to solve this problem is welcome.
Thanks
