    Hi people,

    Any ideas I am getting the following message when I'm trying to install a2billing?

    -bash: /usr/local/sbin/install-a2billing: /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

    I have already updated scripts.

    Any ideas?
    Thank you

    Yes I did
    Not everybody uses Google as first preference you see.

    i have solved this problem in this way:
    cd /usr/local/sbin
    dos2unix install-a2billing

    the script was opened with winzozz editor!!!! :(

    I had the same issue and this worked for me beautifully. Great work.

    The ^M is the clue. This indicates that somehow the script or text file was created using an MSDOS editor and not a Unix editor. MSDOS terminates end of lines with the ASCII characters CR (carriage return) and LF (Line Feed) while Unix only uses LF. When a MSDOS created script runs, Unix chokes on the extra character and reports it as the keyboard shortcut ^M. You can use the "^" series of keyboard shortcuts to "type" in ASCII control characters. You can read the details on my online book Introduction to Data Communications

    Well, as much as I worry about Google becoming self aware and turning into SkyNet, it still is the best search engine for more technical searches.

    Wonderful Solution which worked from the very first time.

    Thank you!
