It doesn't work for me no matter what.
I'm pretty sure I know which SSI and UNIX command to use...

I finished it
That was quite... dumb of me
But I guess I learnt more by concentrating on the learning of SSI and UNIX commands
The only mistake that I had after I got the right command is the spacing..... =.=

I told you... :mrgreen:

*sigh* I figured out how to use the command, and I also figured out how to get it to the parent directory(in theory), yet it continues to block all of my attempts to use it. Even the original command I used is blocked now. What should I do?

EDIT: Finished, Here is a big hint: it's not the command that is the problem, but how you format it(ie: where you place spaces). It should be no problem if you use the right command. The user input is very specific, as stated in level 9 regarding this level.

By the time you figure this out, you prob will smack yourself across the face for how simple it is.

First off the apache site is a good help(sry no link its been posted enough already) but i found this side to be a bit better help, but it will only help you if you figured out how to run the unix commands in ssi. Its right there on this site

i did not mean this to be a spoiler also

yea I got it, took like 15 min. heres the thing

Common mistakes are putting a ! at the end, mistaking "I" with "l", and not spacing correctly

you need to know SSI (basic)

you will need to use the unix comand used in the last one pretty much.

If you got this far in reading this post, here is a handy hint.

../ is the directory you are in now. Read the first paragraph in this challange.

The exploitable part is Stephanie's program.

Jesus! what a hard mission!, any how "" this site helped in finding the commands use sense and read all the commands carefully, other then that if you are not getting anywhere from the start, get some knowledge on how to "execute commands" in SSI.
