in thread CGI and DBI

Did you do as I suggested and trim your script down to just display a message and NOT do the database stuff? Doing this will reveal whether your problem is webserver permissions related. Get your bare-bones cgi script (that just displays a message) to work in the browser first, and *THEN* try adding in the database stuff.

    Hi, I tried the trimmed down version of the code and this works ok. Thanks
      I don't know why your connect would take a long time - doesn't make sense to me. I'd try one more thing - put prints both before and after your connect - each print should print the current time. That will tell you exactly how much time your connect takes. Run your script with those prints a few times, and post the results here.
