    Was the website working before you uploaded this file? What happens if you delete the file you uploaded?

    Is it possible to show us the contents of baby.cgi, if you need a free place to store your website, without banners etc. I allow users to temporarily store web developments on my web space.

    yes the website was working! I deleted the file that I uploaded but it did not make the website reappear! I know that it is the file with the extension cgi that I was not supposed to touch that made the whole site disappeared.
    for infoand as you must have guessed by now!!!) I know nothing about programing!

    Re: help

    yes it is possible to show you the content of baby.cgi but as I rather limit the damage, I will prefer to give you the access code (via your email)to get to the website than to try to do anything myself! sure it is wiser!

    Re: help

    just in case, this is the message that appears instead of the website:
    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    More than likely you need to set file permissions, it may also have incorrect paths.
