If you're already familier with how to use CGI scripts, you can get Bestdam Logger Lite script up and running in a couple minutes.

  1. Open the bdlogger.pl file in a text editor and:
    • if necessary, modify the shebang line
    • enter values for the first two user variables (e-mail address and mail program path) and optionally for user variables 3, 4, and 8

  2. On the server, create a bdlogger subdirectory under your cgi-bin directory and FTP the script and data files into it using ASCII mode

  3. If you using a UNIX/Linux server, chmod the files:
    • bdlogger.pl to 755
    • all other files to 666

  4. Add the following SSI directive tag to your Web page(s):

    <!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/bdlogger/bdlogger.pl" -->

That's all there is to it !
