.cgi 500 Internal Server Error Help
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 25, 2012
I am not able to execute any of the .cgi files in the cgi-bin folder. I can execute .pl files in the “cgi-bin” folder but not .cgi files, not even a super simple .cgi file.
Apache2 log error message:
(13)Permission denied: exec of '/usr/lib/cgi-bin/test.cgi' failed Premature end of script headers: test.cgi
I read through this tutorial: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/how...html#errorlogs
Windows Azure VM with Root Access
Ubuntu Server 12.04 with desktop installed
Perl is installed here: /usr/bin/perl
Apache2 is installed
PHP5 is installed
There is no suexec in the /usr/lib/apache2 folder which is where this command says that apache looks for the file:
Permissions on /usr/lib/cgi-bin are 755
Apache VirtualHost file:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/

Apache CGI/Perl Internal Server Error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 5, 2006
I've been at this problem for a few hours and it's been very frustrating. However before I get started I just want to thank everyone who can help me out or give some good advice. Thanks
So, I've spent the last half hour searching through this forum alone. I've spent over an hour going through google and other various forums as well. I've seen a lot of solutions already and tried them as well, and so far nothing so I'll try to list everything I have tried. So here goes.
My problem is with CGI/Perl scripts. For some reason even after httpd configuration and restarts and various other modifications to make this work...it just hasn't.
When I go to the script in my browser, I get the notorious "500 Internal Server Error" Which says:
SSH in a CGI script
- date: March 7, 2004
I'm writing a cgi script(in perl) that will reside on an apache server by itself. I have a front-page where it asks me for a variable, and this is then passed to my cgi script.
Now, the cgi script is supposed to take that variable, and use it to ssh to the name of machine(which is the variable) and restart a process on the machine.
I'd like to know the best way to do this.. is ssh good enough? How would i implement this?
The best i've figured out is:
system 'ssh [email protected]
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
[SOLVED] QNX checksum call in cgi shell scripting not working
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2011
I'm new to linux and to cgi shell scripting. I have a QNX machine with a slinger webserver running on it. With a cgi script i'm trying to do the QNX cksum call and compare it's output value with a fixed output.
When i execute the script at the command line it works perfect, but when execute this script by by the webserver in my browser it doesn't work. Here's my code:
temp=`cksum $FILE | cut -f 1 -d ' '`
if [ $temp = $MATCHING ]
echo "Checksums are matching"
echo "Checksums NOT matching"
Could it be possible that i'm not allowed to do the cksum call in combination with the slinger webserver? Can someone help me solve this problem?
Thanks in advance

Configuring httpd.conf for CGI in Apache 2.x
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 8, 2004
I am having a lot of difficulty configuring httpd.conf to handle CGI, specifically having it work with /home/*/public_html/cgi-bin/. I am using RedHat 9.0.
I keep getting the error: "Premature end of script headers:"
I have checked the Apache FAQ and documentation and several forums, but none of the listed solutions have worked.
My httpd.conf (relevant part) file looks like this:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
Allow from all
Allow from all
AddHandler cgi-script cgi pl
Allow from all
500 Internal Server Error CGI Script
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2012
I'm running Fedora 16 32bit on a server of mine and I'm trying to get a cgi script to work. I'm getting the following error in the error log when trying to run the install.cgi via the browser.
/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: Modules/WSD/Filter51032_2.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Istack_sp_ptr
[Fri Nov 09 14:24:16 2012] [error] [client 220.127.116.11] Premature end of script headers: install.cgi
I install perl and all the modules via CPAN. I've reinstalled some of the perl modules but still get the same error. A google search provided no relevant solution to this problem. Can anyone recomend something?
Thank you in advanced.
[SOLVED] Run bash command taking input from HTML page CGI script
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 14, 2013
I am trying to get input from my browser using a text box and submit button and trying to create a file in the server with the same name as the input. I am also printing the value of the input to the browser.
Though, the browser is displaying the input I gave, the file is not getting created in the server.
PS: None of the bash commands I am giving in the script is running :/
