Re: Ultimate Bulletin Board v5.3x? Bug
From: jr () SCMS RGU AC UK (John Riddoch)

By default, Member files are stored in the /cgi-bin/Members directory. The
members files are stored as numbers, with a .cgi extension, eg: 00000001.cgi

Under unix, if you put in http://www.url.blah/cgi-bin/Members/00000001.cgi,
the server will return a 500 error, however, under NT with ActivePerl (v5.07
I believe?), it will return something like this:

CGI Error
<SNIP>
How to fix? change the members path to something more like
xvc83nx9wy4nd0w74m3. That will solve it

Better to make it something a bit more mnemonic, eg member.data and tell the
web server not to serve it.
