Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have downloaded red hat 8 and selected Apache, Perl, PHP, mysql... all seems in order, but i am really getting frustrated with perl. i wrote a very basic script and it is not working. i try to test in a basic shell, and it worked when i try to run it on a browser on a client machine i just get the code printed, and it is not working. please please help me.
simply trying to test mod-perl
as perl came with the install of red hat, i simply went to httpd.conf and added the following
allow from all
Was I supposed to see the ``Internal Server Error'' message? That error message rings a bell. I haven't written any CGI for some time now so you'll have to forgive me. It'll take some time for me to get rid of all these cobwebs.
Have you tried using printf() instead of print()? IIRC, print() automatically appends a newline. That might be a problem.
Do any CGI programs work? Where does this CGI program live and have you configured the httpd server to allow programs to run out of that directory?
do u have MSN Messanger, i will try to explain the problem further please.
Me? On MSN? That's rich. Sorry, we'll have to work it out here.
I had the exact same problem. Around line 800 in the httpd.conf you should see a line that looks like this
#AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
Take out the # , restart the httpd server (service httpd restart) and it should work. If your cgi script has a .pl extenstion, you may have to add .pl to the list after the .cgi in the above line. Hope this helps.
