      I don't know what thats all about but if you edited the script on a Windows PC and then uploaded it to the server it may have thrown the long lines off and wrapped them..

      If you did edit it on a Windows PC I would suggest redownloading the script directly to the server and editing it using vi or similar to save the hassle..

      If you didn't edit it on a windows PC then i am not sure whn you are getting the error unless its somthing that has happened when you were setting the parameters for your sever..

        Hi wipeout,

        Thanks for answering. That's exactly what I did - edit the the script though Dreamweaver on Windows. Would I be able to edit the file through Telnet?

          Yes.. If you edit it using vi directly on the server you should be fine..

          Make sure and download an original copy first instead of trying to fix the broken one..
