That poses a problem as the ISP does not provide access. Even the help desk 
does not have access.

The problem must be simple (I am!) so this is what's in conf.pl:

# Where you want the indexer to start. [re-index]
$DOCUMENT_ROOT = '/isp/users/identity/';
REM  The ISP states - full server path to web space root directory.
   As the Indexer works this must be correct.

# The base url of your site.
$BASE_URL = 'http://www.domain.name';

# The url in which Perlfect Search is located (usually somewhere in cgi-bin/).
$CGIBIN = $BASE_URL."/cgi-bin/perlfect/search/";
REM The ISP states - full url to cgi script [web address with /cgi-bin/added].

# The full-path of the directory where Perlfect Search is installed.
# $INSTALL_DIR = '/isp/users/identity/cgi-shl/perlfect/search/';
REM The ISP states - full server path to CGI directory.

It looks like I have two choices - use another ISP or use another script as I am 
lacking in knowledge to fault find any further.
