Hi Torbjorn,

I create a directory my in my server_root and put my.erl in there.

I do and get this error
{'init terminating in do_boot',{undef,[{my,start,[]},{init,start_it,1},{init,start_em,1}]}}
init terminating in do_boot ()

Btw, is it normal to get like 4-5 PROGRESS REPORTs when startin inets?

I'm not sure waht you mean by startup code.

On mod_esi.html#ErlScriptAlias it says to use my:test syntax.  Is this
just outdated?

Ahh, thank you, I've looked at that and I'll study it more indepth
once I get eli working.

Thanks for your valuable response.
