    Understanding

    Explain this to me please.

    I set up an account for someone to use as there directory. Explain this path to me please. Explain this path to me

    /www/t/thejump/htdocs/seafood

    seafood is the directory that his stuff is in. understand
    htdocs is the stuff that all html is ultimately in. understand
    thejump mywebsite name think i understand setup by powweb
    t why the t?
    www why the www?

    Can you use relative paths when you refrence a cgi like this below?
    <!--#exec cgi="../../cgi-bin/seafood/cc_log.pl"-->

    tried absolute and I get errors tried absolute like this
    /www/t/thejump/htdocs/seafood/cc_log.pl

    and this

    /www/cgi-bin/seafood/cc_log.pl

    but the script still doesn't work. Of course there could be other errors that are causing this to not work.

    The cgi-bin directory is in the htdocs directory. So a relative path from the seafood directory would be ../cgi-bin/
