In addition to the instance logs under /www there might be job logs for the instance jobs - these run in subsystem QHTTPSVR. If you are using CGI, these are likely to be more useful.

As to the match, what URL did you use? If you only specified "/ewalibcgitp/" then it would not have a program name to substitute.

Matt,

Did the HTTP error log give any details...
I checked the "basic_error_logs" logs in the logs directory. If there
are other logs to check, please let me know where these are.

If not, start the server from the command like with the -vv...
I did this and I found a spool file with what looks like trace data.
Before I had a chance to review this (and before I found where it was)
another programmer working on this problem made this discovery. In the
configuration file there is this line "ScriptAliasMatch
/ewalibcgitp/(.*).pgm /qsys.lib/ewalibcgit.lib/$1.pgm". Looking through
a trace log that the other programmer started he found a line that shows
"request filename = "/qsys.lib/ewalibcgit.lib/.pgm"". It looks like the
substitution variable $1 is being replaced with the program name. Which
now makes sense because we tweaked the configuration file yesterday and
now the 404 error says "The script request is not valid. The script is
not executable." This matches the "ScriptAliasMatch" line in the
configuration file and if the substitution is happening then the script
can't run.

Any thoughts on what would stop the substitution from happening?

Thanks,
Kent
