Your problem is that you've left 'path' in the code, where it says:

"You should change /path/ to be the path to the parent of your htdocs

file.ss is where the actual code is

servlet-path (and APPLICATION.ss) is the URL you would like to use to get to it.

htdocs is relative to 'path', which you must supply. If you use
(current-directory), then you will use the current directory.
