News Page Updater 1.15 is a simple Little utility that was written to update the news page of this site. It simply allows you to add items ( automatically adding the date to the beginning of the message ) and to edit the raw html code as necessary.
You can also set the time to add or subtract hours from your servers localtime if you wish to use a time that differs from that of your servers. And, as of V. 1.15 there will be no more 13:03 --> it has been changed to show a more acceptable time format --> 3:03 am (or pm).
This script needs to be able to write to the html file, and so if scripts are not run as user on your system you will have to change the permissions on the file (CHMOD the file 666 usually).
Installation is rather simple... add a username and password, the path to the file that will be edited, and chmod the script 755. This script also uses cgi-lib.pl and expects this library file to be in the same directory as the script. If you put the cgi-lib.pl elsewhere, or already have this file on your system, simply change the path from ./cgi-lib.pl to the correct path. eg; /home/usr/cgi-bin/library/cgi-lib.pl
NOTE: I have been informed that this script is being successfully used on an NT server using the Perl for Win32 Port(activestate.com).
