CGI's on a linux server

Michael,

did you solved this? I suspect that the permissions are wrong, or that
the stackfile format is wrong. The correct permission is 755. I don't
think the rockets cgi stackfile is saved in the new format, just in
case, I've uploaded new version that I am sure is in the old stack
file format.

What revolution version are you using on your server? If you're using
any 2.6.x series and the stack is in the new 2.8.x series, then you
need a old stack file format version. You can open it in the IDE and
save as legacy version or you can download a new copy from my site.

best
Andre
