Hi. I posted this elsewhere, obviously in the wrong spot.

I'm building a website that's gonna process credit cards when the product (a downloadable ebook) is purchased.

Once the card is processed, I'm gonna have the processor activate a CGI script which makes sure that the origination came from the card host and not someone else (like a scammer). This CGI will check the origin and, if OK, call a PHP script that will activate the download (again, after checking to make sure it came from my host and not somewhere else.)

When I tried to test run the CGI script, I got a "You wish to download the .cgi file" dialog box.

QUESTION: How do I store these scripts so the computer knows it's something to execute, instead of a "file to download"? (as you can guess, I'm not any kind of script or perl or PHP knowledgable person, I got the scripts from someone else). Thanks

Paul - contact your webhost. When you get a msg wanting to dl the files, that means that your service is not setup to recognize .cgi extension as a file to open.

You need to talk to whoever hosts your site to get that setup.
