Hi Folks,

I am just releasing a simple stack to help people here install and 
setup both MetaCard engine and LibCGI in remote locations using FTP 
access. Stack will ask for connection info like your username, 
password, FTP server and root folder to upload things. Then it will ask 
for the MC engine and for LibCGI.rev file. Stack will upload and 
install files. There are two buttons:

"Install MC engine": Ask for you to locate the MC engine file. Upload 
to server and CHMOD 755 it.

"Install LibCGI": Ask for you to locate the LibCGI.rev file. It will 
upload it. It will create 'stacks' subfolder (CHMOD 777), it will 
create error.html and it will create launcher.cgi.

I choosed to rename form.cgi to launcher.cgi for I think it suits 
better it's function. It's what we actually use to launch 

I would like feedback on this... I am a little lousy on unix perms, so 
I just CHMOD all files 755 and the folder 777.

Both error.html and launcher.cgi are created by LibFTPURLUpload, the 
file contents are inside stack custom properties.

You can fetch the CGITOOL stack from named

or from message box type

go stack url ""
