I have changed hosts and the new guys have a newer version of Perl (which this site is written in) that doesn't include the ancient CGI module by default (which again the site uses) so nothing is working.
I could do workarounds but at this stage and because there's not too many script pages on the site, I'm going to rewrite it in PHP (which is what I have been using for the past 10 years)
So the site is going to be down for another few days but hopefully not too long...
Oh dear, it has been a while. I'd really better get going on it again, since it's now the subject of a blog posting by Schmorp!!
Opps, it has been a while. Started converting the main page into PHP. I wish I knew $_COOKIE was included with $_REQUEST. Would have saved much debugging time!!
I have recreated the database on the new host and the simple framework for PHP conversion, which is things like DB connections etc.
