Hi Ralf

I Upgraded the livecode-server to 9.5.1 linux 64 bit 

I then 
I tried an .lc  file with no calls to RevIgniter but with a section of livecode script in the page

/home/myapp/sites/ <>

put "<H1>hello world</H1>"
put "LiveCode Server version:" && the version & "<br>"
put "Steve Holt!!   \o/ "

I did not get the error that I did before  (lscgid: execve():/home/myapp/sites/ <> No such file or directory)

The page loads correctly with livecode-server filling the parts I put in the <lc?  ?> tags.

So now I have LiveCode server working!

The next thing I tried my app which calls the api which uses RevIgniter.

I got an error message back from the server that looks like a RevIgniter error.

I will  contact you offline about this since it is long and probably I have already taken up too much bandwidth on the list with this.
