There is something I don't understand... I instaled wamp+perl_addon and as I understood I should be able to run perl scripts somehow by default configuration but I don't understand how - there is no /cgi-bin/ in by www directory (default directory) - I tried to create a pl and cgi file I couldn't run them. So please explain how to run perl scripts.

Thank you.

Can't just put Apache/cgi-bin in www, but right modification of httpd.conf.
If default setup, still not work, make sure to include the right path on the top of your file.
Check my simple sample file here on "View tested XML and also test CGI/Perl":
Hope this help,

Hey cyber_kaley20,
I've had the same problem when moving cgi/perl files from wamp/apache2/cgi-bin to wamp/www/test_folder, but now I've just found out a solution, or at least it works for me, so if you still around, I will let you know.
