Page counter problems

My  page counter at www3.igalaxy.net/~ggia  does not work, and my isp does not respond to calls about the probem.

Pages made with Microsoft Front Page with this isp, however, do have working counters.

Any suggestions how to get my counter working?

The above code comes from your site.  It looks like your image tag source is a pearl script.  Is the script there?  Is it in a folder that is allowed to run scripts?

Also, you have an extra > before the p tag that is before the image tag.

I tried to access the counter.  It isn't there.  Upon further inspection, I see the path is ..... /path/to/counter.pl.  I wonder if you copied this from somewhere without realizing that you need to replace that text with the actual path to your counter code?

Just a guess!?

I appreciate the comments. As of 3-4-04 still no working counter.
Does anyone know what my isp has to do on their end so I can have a working counter?
