Re: executing LInux commands from web
Your perl script is executed by the Web Server's user (usually apache or nobody), which have few system privileges. To run these commands you need to run the script as a privileged user. You can use suexec(http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/suexec.html) or use the sudo command.
To secure your script you must implement some authentication to access the script, additionally you may also use SSL to access the script.
