Hello Folks,

The Revolution CGI engine is not pre installed on on-rev. You need to upload
it there, to the cgi-bin folder and chmod 755 it. A webdisk, I think is a
WebDAV volume like an iDisk, still, the on-rev account support ftp access
and ftp supports chmoding. I find WebDAV a novel thing which I never use.
Best go with FTP.
