APACHE 1.2b4: NEWBIE Problem with POST

APACHE 1.2b4: NEWBIE Problem with POST

Post by bart hoekstr » Fri, 24 Jan 1997 04:00:00


I'm just trying to start up our web server, and I am trying to get a
simple guest book application using qddb up and running.  Qddb is
basically a tcl/tk based database, and the guestbook application runs a
modified tcl shell.  When I clik on the url that points to the script it
generates a form which I can fill out.  However, when I try to submit
the form I get the message:

Method Not Allowed

The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL

Do I have to explicitly allow POST to certain cgi-scripts?  If so, how
do I do that.  I have gotten simple cgi scripts to run in the same
directory to run.  All the files that need to be written to have the
appropriate permissions.  I have tried setting

allow from all
in access.conf.

I have tried looking at all the documentation I could find, and I feel
like I'm missing something really stupid.  There are no error messages
showing up in the http-errors.

I am running Linux 2.0.28 with Apache 1.2b4, which I compiled with gcc
