    500 internal server error

    Hi,

    I need a quick help from GURUs of PERL.

    I moved a website to a new location and got an error "Internal Server Error" instead of specific error. As i don't know PERL so i don't know how to fix it.

    Can anybody help me to fix this error or to generate a specific error which i can understand as "Internal Server Errror" is not understandable for me.

    Need some quick help from you guys


    Thanks,
    Shahzad

    Re: 500 internal server error

    Hi,

    This is a common error but isn't very descriptive. Without further details it would be difficult to ascertain exactly what the cause of this error is. Here are some pointers:

    1) Script permissions are set to 755.
    2) Script uploaded in ASCII format.
    3) Web host perl script extension (.pl and/or .cgi).
    4) Script correctly located in the cgi-bin if need be.
    5) Proper shebang line i.e. #!usr/bin/perl.
    6) Script syntax is correct (errors can be displayed using the CGI::Carp module).

    Goodluck,

    Chris
