Cgi and Database

Hershel,

I'm not sure if this is the answer to your question, but I have found  
problems with using http-based url's from inside the cgi folder. You  
might try removing the "http://localhost/cgi-bin" portion, since it  
appears the database is already inside the cgi-bin directory.

Another option is to use a conventional flat file database (i.e. text  
file). I've been using that with Rev cgi with no problem.

Richard
