[Answered] Perl Cgi - 500 Internal Server Error


Recommended Posts

Sorry, I really tried to find the solution in the forum:

I got a perl script in the cgi-bin folder of my public_html.

Permission is 0755 (so runable) in File Manager.

Shebang is #!/usr/bin/perl -w

But when i try "http://tarock.heliohost.org/cgi-bin/test.pl" I get the Internal Server Error. :-(



#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use CGI;

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello World\n";

Server: Stevie

User: tarock

No you don't have to ask to have it chmoded. I didn't check the file permissions before I chmoded your file so I don't know what it was before. Just make sure you choose 755 on any cgi/perl files. If you have anymore problems, post back.

Well, I still have my file DBSelectStatement.pl which has the same permissions 0755, but I get the server error. I just copied this one and named it test.pl.

I can't figure out what is the difference between your 0755 and mine. Is there another possibility for me to do a chmod but in File Manager?

I also figured out, that it takes some time, after changing the file permissions, till you can run the script. That irritated me.

That's probably just your cache. It should run immediately after you change the permissions.
