CGI Scripts will not run

Recommended Posts

I have tried everything I can think of, but I can not get my pl/cgi scripts to run. This is a windows box with all uniserver settings as it comes default.

 

I can not seem to run scrips from the main directory or the cgi-bin, and yes THE FILE IS IN THE DIR.

 

Please help me get this working.

 

This the result on the webpage:

Internal Server Error

 

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

 

Please contact the server administrator, admin@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

 

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Here is the error log:

This is the cgi

#! /usr/local/bin/perl

# hello.pl -- my first perl script!

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

print <<"EOF";
<HTML>

<HEAD>
<TITLE>Hello, world!</TITLE>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<H1>Hello, world!</H1>
</BODY>

</HTML>
EOF

Never mind :D

 

I had to change "#! /usr/local/bin/perl" to "#! /usr/bin/perl"

 

Now it works..
