Exclamation Help!!! - Perl


use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser);
use CGI;
$query = new CGI;

This is code that i got from a tuitorial in a book. It works on the website that gose along with the book but when i try to run it from my webserver (PQD Networks) i get a 500 internal service error. I did have to change the first line of the code to point to the PERL directory.

You can view the file on my server at http://www.match.nnysitedesigns.net/cig-bin/pindemo1.pl

you can view the working version at:

Thanks in advanced.

You must make sure that you saved the script with Unix linebreaks, not Windows linebreaks. Then you must make the script executable:
chmod 755 /path/to/pindemo1.pl
And if you're using suExec, then the owner and group of the script must match the suExec user and group.
