Place Random JPEG or GIF images
anywhere within your page content.
1. Setting some options at the beginning of the script files (*.pl)
2. Using FTP to upload all the files
3. Setting permissions on the files
4. Testing the script
1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the .pl script
Change the path to perl so that it's configured for your server.
Make changes to the variables at the top as well:
$base_directory = "/images/random/";
$datapath = "/images/random/";
$align = "left";
$border = "1";
2. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of) and
upload the files to your server.
It's easiest to put everything in the CGI-BIN.
Upload pictures to your pictures directory as well.
3. Set permissions (CHMOD) on the *.pl file so it's executable. (755).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, and execute.
4. Insert the following into a text file and rename it to test.shtml:
5. Place the above HTML clip in any page that you want a random picture.
Be sure the page has a Server Side Include extension (.shtml), or
that you have enabled SSI on all html pages. You may need your site
administrator to enable this feature.
That's it! You're set! Let me know if you have problems.
