After install, rather than being transferred to the login screen, I'm prompted to open/save a file named "index.pl"This can be caused if your web server doesn't currently allow Perl (CGI) scripts to be executed in the directory to where you have installed your MIDAS booking system.
On some web server configurations, CGI is restricted by default to only be executed from within the server's "cgi-bin" (or equivalent) directory.
To resolve, you'll need to either install your MIDAS booking system to a location which does permit the execution of cgi, or enable cgi execution for the current directory you've installed your MIDAS booking system to.
If you're running an Apache server, details of how to enable cgi execution in arbitrary server locations can be found in the Apache documentation
