Thank you for you question beaglelady!

The reason you get a <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/website-troubleshooting/404-error-not-found-pages">404 not found</a> is because the server does not have that <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/general-server-setup/where-are-my-files-located">file in that location</a>. You will need to append your <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/general-server-setup/what-is-my-username-and-password">cPanel username</a> at the end like your <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/using-your-temporary-url">temporary URL</a> found in your <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/viewing-account-technicial-information-in-amp">AMP technical details</a>.

The following example is <strong>incorrect</strong>:
http://biz136.inmotionhosting.com/cgi-bin/Sos.pl

The following example is <strong>correct</strong>:
http://biz136.inmotionhosting.com/~userna5/cgi-bin/Sos.pl

Also, keep in mind that Perl scripts will need <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/change-file-permissions">permissions 755</a> to work.

Best regards,
