running perl scripts une mdk9.l and apache


I am having problems running simple perl scripts on my home system.

I want to write a script that uses a browser to display a string or something.

There is a test.cgi file that is on my system in my cgi-bin directory. When I run it, it says that it worked, and then displays the environment variables. So I know that it is working for that.

The problem is that when I write my own perl file, it says there is a system error(#500). I have only asked it to display a simple hello workd test line. Is there something that I am doing wrong. Here is the code that I used.


#!/usr/bin/perl

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

print "Hello, World.\n";


I have checked the path to perl, and it is correct. Also, this file is located in the cgi-bin directory, so it should run.

Can anyone help me with this problem.

Thanks,

Craig.

Is the file executable?

chmod +x <filename>

Thank You trickykid. I can't believe that I didn't do that. Isn't it always the simplest of solutions. Thanks Again.

You know how many times I hit myself in the head for the small things I've overlooked myself..

Glad to know it was that simple for you.
