Correct $basedir:
Make sure you are using the correct path for your $basedir and don't use your web path as your $basedir and make sure the you added /cgi-bin/ to the end of the $basedir if that is were you put book.cgi if not then add wherever you put book.cgi to your $basedir.

Correct $listfile:
make sure that if you changed the name of kitbook.txt to reflect that change in the $listfile

Change the value to 1:
did you change the value from 0 to 1 in the local($check_referer) = 0; line of book.cgi?

Edited The Fla:
Make sure you edited the file guestbook.fla with the above changes and to upload the edited version to your website and not the one that comes in

The Right directories:
make sure that the files that you uploaded are in the right directories because book.cgi needs to be in a directory where cgi scripts are allowed and not just any directory on your server.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
