cgi and Plesk 8.1

    I am a webmaster who does not know much about servers.

    I have a site hosted on a UNIX server using Plesk 8.1
    Their support is not helping me at all.

    If I upload a cgi script to the cgi-bin , it will not work. I upload with WS_FTP in ascii, I even put the cgi ext in the ext list under options.

    I have never had these problems before. No script I have will work
    if I upload.

    I can get the script to at least 'run' if I actuall Creat the file on the server in control panel. But even then, it runs but does not send out mail to me from the form script I use (which works on any other server no prob)

    the support guys said they tried formmail.pl by Matt, and it sends mail, but that does not solve the problem with the sendmail not working in mine.

    They said they at least fixed the problem with uploading by telling me to include the '.cgi' extension in the extensions tab list under options. I did that, it seems to work but now it does not.

    I always upload manually in options anyway.

    any ideas?
