I have followed the configuration of CodeStriker as specified in “Codestriker Guide” but the below is the issues
I am deploying on “Windows XP with SP 3” and “IIS 5.1”.
As specified in section 2.5 I have configured and when I try to browse the http://localhost/codestriker/codestriker.pl and it throws and error page couldn’t be found. I further went and checked in “D:\codestriker\bin” but I didn’t find the “codestriker.pl” file.
Further to test the configuration is correct or not I have created a sample .pl file and followed the below steps and it worked fine. I hope the problem is creating the virtual directory and point to right file as specified in section 2.5.
Pls let me know if anyone had faced this issues and addressed it.
2.5. IIS configuration
Startup the IIS configuration application by going to "Control Panel" -> "Administrative Tools" -> "Internet Services Manager". Like the Apache configuration, the webserver needs to be told where to find the Codestriker CGI script, and where to find the associated CSS and html help files. Assuming you are deploying Codestriker under the "Default Web site", right-click this entry on the left hand frame of the window, and select "New" -> "Virtual Directory" -> "Next". Enter in codestriker into the Alias
textfield, then click "Next". Then enter the cgi-bin directory of your unpacked Codestriker distribution into the "Directory" textfield, then click "Next". Make sure the "Execute" access permission checkbox is selected, then click "Next", click then "Finished".
It is important that the codestriker virtual directory is setup to be able to execute Perl scripts. Right-click the codestriker virtual directory and select "Properties". Click on the "Configuration..." button. Check that there is an entry for .pl files, and that the "Executable Path" entry looks like (substitute the path to your local Perl installation):
C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe "%s" %s
If there is no mapping for .pl files (which would be odd, since the ActiveState install does this for you automatically), add a new entry in with the above setting, limited to "GET,HEAD,POST". Make sure you enter the quotes, as shown above. Follow a similar process for the codestrikerhtml directory. Right-click "Default Web site" and select "New" -> "Virtual Directory" -> "Next". Enter in codestrikerhtml into the Alias textfield, then click "Next". Then enter the html directory of your unpacked Codestriker distribution into the "Directory" textfield, then click "Next". Make sure the "Read" and "Browse" access permission checkboxes are selected, then "Next", then "Finished".
