Ensure that the rights on the data file allow the httpd process write 
privileges.  In otherwords, the directory and file that you desire to write, 
must have the rights set so that whatever user and group that you specified in 
the httpd.conf file can access it properly.

Hope it helps.

Hello.  I have run into a weird problem with a cgi script I am trying to 
use.  I have a script "test.html" in my cgi-bin directory.  It has been 
written to produce a count of hit on a page.  When testing this script at 
the command line, it works, and produces the desired result.  However, 
when I attempt to run the script through the broweser, I get a message 
"data file empty" or something similiar to that.  All rights have been 
set correctly.  Any ideas?
