CGI Scripts not executing
 
Hi,

I have an Apache web server hosting multpile sites for a class. Everything was working until today when the instructor informed me that some CGI scripts were not executing from a folder that was previously working. I have checked and double checked my HTTPD.conf file, permissions on the folder. There doesnt seem to be any problems that I can see. Can anyone direct me to something that I may have missed?

Thanks in advance.

Can you post the contents of your access_log and error_log files for the times that you try to access the scripts.

Mr_Oz 04-17-2006 08:52 AM

Here is the log. Even if I create a new user a home folder, no scripts run. The previously created ones still work. It seems anything new will not execute the cgi scripts.

It looks as if the scripts are not sending the correct headers, could you post a copy of one of the scripts.

Mr_Oz 04-17-2006 09:38 AM

#! /usr/bin/perl
#first.cgi - my first CGI script
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
#generate HTML
print "<html>\n";
print "<head><title>First Script</title></head>\n";
print "<body>Congratulations</body>\n";
print "</html>\n";

You have a space in the shebang line, try changing "#! /usr/bin/perl" to "#!/usr/bin/perl"

Mr_Oz 04-17-2006 10:00 AM

I changed it and it still gives me the internal server errror. Weird thing is that these scripts worked before and now they dont. I did not change anything butI am wondering if the class could of did anything that might of broke something. I know they are also playing with Mysql. Would it help to see my htttp.conf file?

Mr_Oz 04-18-2006 04:21 PM

Hi all

It seems that a another party changed the permissions to 777 on the cgi-bin folder. I changed them back to 755 and it worked. An oversight on my part. Thank again to all that helped!!!
