Internal Server Error 500 but no error log


I Have a Perl script that creates a form, the action of which calls another perl script. The first script seems to run fine but when the submit button is pressed I get the old Internal Server Error 500.

Assuming I could simply look at the error log file on the server to find out what is going on, there is only an error relating to the missing 500.shtml page and nothing else.

The offending script is simply:

use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser );
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "hello";

All related permissions are 755 and the url is correct with all the form field data after the ?

Why no error log?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Make sure your calling script is not echoing/printing out anything to stdio.
