Notes...
  1. There is no need to buy hosting licence if able to reside the guestbook CGI on own server. All that to pay then is a one-off license fee of $49 for the software.
  2. While most ISPs allow their users to reside and run CGIs, each site may have different requirements and directory specifications.
  3. If you are the system administrator for an NT or Windows webserver, then it is required to configure the server to run CGIs. We can offer technical advice but we will not be able to configure it, as it requires onsite access to the server.
