    Help setting my cron job!
    Hey guys, I have a small problem that I can't seem to figure out...

    I set up a cron job with my host company, godaddy to a file ""

    but this is the response I am getting:

    Can't locate swars.cgi in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/etc/httpd/cgi-bin/autoresponse /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /var/chroot/home/content/y/o/g/yogicchai/html/cgi-bin/autoresponse/activate.cgi line 44.

    The file "activate.cgi" is:


    use lib '/usr/local/etc/httpd/cgi-bin/autoresponse';

    chdir '/usr/local/etc/httpd/cgi-bin/autoresponse';


    $activate = 1;
    require "swars.cgi";

    My first guess would be to give an explicit path to swars.cgi.

    Don't assume that the cron job starts in the same folder as your script . That require statement may need to look like:

    require '/'
