Header and Footer doesnt show? Need help?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : S-Mart Shopping Cart : One Thread

This is what comes up when I run the smart.cgi :

Could not open http://www.ragerecords.com/smart/demoheader.html No such file or directory

same with the header.html, but when I copy the exact url from above (http://www.ragerecords.com/smart/demoheader.html)into the location window of my browser, it shows the demoheader.html as expected. So there is nothing wrong with the html and the url is correct too? I dont understand why the header and footer html doesnt show up? I have spent frustrating hours trying to find out what the problem is. Ive uploaded, changed extension, chmoded everything as necesary? why doesnt it work. Any answers desperately appreciated.

Nine chances out of 10 your server software is configured so that .cgis cannot call html from the cgi-bin or cgi-local directory in which the cgi resides. Ask your sysop.

Try creating a directory below the /smart directory, say /smart/html

change the smart.cfg entry to reflect the new path and move the header and footer there. It should work
