PERL documents may be a bit finicky when it comes to uploading them to your host, so I figured I would include a section on this as well.

Some hosts have an "easy" upload section using your browser. Most hosts these days allow you to upload (and download) files using an FTP program. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It is basically a direct connection between your computer and your online file directory. Two good FTP programs to use (and free) are WS_FTP and SmartFTP. WS_FTP is a favorite to many, but I prefer using the SmartFTP.

Find WS_FTP


Find SmartFTP


You will have to look through the HELP, FAQ or email your host for the exact settings to use for connecting to your online area.

Now you should have an FTP program, setup, and connected to your online space. The next part is transferring the files. This is done by highlighting and clicking on the transfer button (or drag and drop). BUT WAIT! Before you do any transferring, check the MODE the transfer is set to. There are 3 settings for mode. ASCII, BINARY, and AUTO. Different file types need to be transferred in a compatable mode otherwise it will turn into garbage at the other end. Kinda like fitting a orange through a square hole. You may get it through, but what a mess it will be. Instead of going into what all files must be done in what type of mode and why and such... let's just cut to the chase and state : PERL documents must be sent by ASCII mode.

Most of your PERL documents are probably going to be uploaded to a special folder called cgi-bin. With the correct permissions set, they can work in most any folder, but this is the most common and used on the Internet.

The last part of uploading is changing the CHMOD of the folder holding the PERL documents. If you didn't read about CHMOD yet, go back a couple pages and read it over.
