Hi, I have installed WebmoPro v 12. I am able to get to the login screen (even though it has no images) but when I enter the username 'admin' it forwards me to a 404 error 'The requested URL /home/webmo/public_html/cgi-bin/login.cgi was not found on this server'.
I have checked the logs and SuExec is working correctly, also nothing ni the other logs gives much away. Can anybody suggest anything else to try? Thank you.

During installation, you specified the path to the CGI directory instead of the URL. The URL should be something like /~webmo/cgi-bin. Please look carefully at the examples given in the prompts during installation.

Thanks Schmidt, would you recommend a fresh webmo installation? Cheers

Yes, I would recommend just installing a fresh copy of WebMO on top of your existing copy. Just make sure to read the "suggested" example for the paths / URLs very carefully.

Hi Schmidt, I have reinstalled webmo and made a note of the URL's (http://*servername*/~webmo/cgi-bin/login.cgi)
When I enter 'admin' and login it takes me to http://*servername*/home/webmo/public_html/cgi-bin/login.cgi
and gives a 404 error. It is still not displaying any images.
I have run the diagnostic and the error is as follows:
Home directory must be world-executable if WebMO is installed there
I have made the home directory executable so don't understand why this is showing errors? Does anybody have a suggestion please? Thanks
