don't rely on this.... 90% of people who says that has all DBI/DBD modules
actually don't have them.
anyway that's not the case because you should be able to install it.

cannot chdir to ./lib??? what did you download?
there should be a directory <interchange-source-path>/lib/
with Vend and File dirs (full of .pm) and IniConf.pm
also, if configure fails, you cannot "make" nor "make test" nor "make install"
as far as I know when
installing ANY program.

Hello,

My name is David Stites.  I downloaded the latest version of interchange
(4.6.0) in tarball format.  I run a UNIX FreeBSD server and I uploaded the
tarball to my public_html and I unzipped it.  I chdir into the interchange
directory and I try to run the ./configure @ the command line.  However I
get an error.  I try to run the perl Makefile.PL and I get the same error.
I have all the system requirements (perl and DB).  I also tried uploading it
to my root (/user21/home/bigdaves/ and I got the same error.

don't rely on this.... 90% of people who says that has all DBI/DBD modules actually don't have them.
anyway that's not the case because you should be able to install it.
 

My path is
(user21/home/bigdaves/public_html)

public_html is my public directory where I upload my files so that they are
accessible to the Internet.

When I ask where perl is I get
% whereis perl
perl: /usr/bin/perl /usr/share/man/man1/perl.1.gz /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/perl

When I ask where mysql is I get
% whereis mysql
mysql: /usr/local/bin/mysql /usr/local/man/man1/mysql.1.gz
The error is

Found Perl 5.00503 as /usr/bin/perl

If you get a CPAN error, rerun the configuration and it
should go away.

opendir(./../..): Permission denied at /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/FindBin.pm
line
 143
opendir(//..): Permission denied at /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/FindBin.pm
line 16
2
opendir(//..): Permission denied at /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/FindBin.pm
line 16

Where is your Interchange to be installed?

Cannot chdir to ./lib: No such file or directory
make: no target to make.
make: don't know how to make test. Stop
%
 

cannot chdir to ./lib??? what did you download?
there should be a directory <interchange-source-path>/lib/
with Vend and File dirs (full of .pm) and IniConf.pm
also, if configure fails, you cannot "make" nor "make test" nor "make install" as far as I know when
installing ANY program.
 
I am not sure what all this means or what I need to do.  Also I am not sure
what I need to enter when I am asked where is Interchange to be installed.

I greatly appreciate any help I can get as I am new to this and I can set
everything but I don't know how to deal with these errors because I am only
15 and running www.pnsdesigns.com.  I really thank you and would be glad to
do anything for anyone who can help me including some work on their web site
(ie logos etc)

Thanks,
