    I use formmail.pl cgi script for web contact form. When I click on submit I get a blank page with following URL

    mydomain.com/cgi-bin/formmail.pl?recipient=info%40mydomain.com&subject=Web+Contact&redirect=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mydomain.com%2Fthanks.html&Name=Your+Name&E-mail=Your+Email&textarea=kjk%0D%0A

    I'm running CentOS 5.1 with ISPConfig - I enabled CGI Script option in ISPConfig

    Please assist.
    Thank You!

    What does the access log show for the HTTP return code for access to that page?

    What is in your suexec.log file?

    What happens when you try to run feedback.pl from the command line?

    /var/log/httpd/suexec.log

    Thanks catdude!
    Here's my suexec.log (/var/log/httpd/suexec.log)
    I'm not sure how to run feedback.pl from the command line? Could you guide me?

    Code:
    [2008-05-11 20:34:13]: uid: (10027/web5_user) gid: (10005/10005) cmd: feedback.pl
    [2008-05-11 20:34:13]: directory is writable by others: (/var/www/web5/cgi-bin)

    Ok, that suggests your next step. What are the permissions on /var/www/web5/cgi-bin? Is it by any chance world writeable? If so, try changing the permissions to something like 755 or 775 (looks like mine at 775).

    To check whether this is it, after changing the permissions just run the script from the command line and see if reports the same error.

    how to run pl file from command prompt

    Catdude i changed permissions to 775 and I get same result. How would I run PL file within terminal.

    Does the script start with something like the following after the use ... lines?

    If not please try adding this.
     
  11. catdude

    catdude ISPConfig Developer

    Go into the appropriate directory:
    cd <ISPConfig user home dir>/mydomain.com/cgi-bin

    Once there, execute the file with:
    ./formail.pl

    If you have a permissions problem, this ought to cause an error message to come up on your screen. If everything is working properly, it ought to spit some HTML out on your screen.

    The script is (formmail.pl) from Matt's Script Archive

    Hi Ben,

    this is actually formmail script from Matt's Script Archive. It does have print section.

    Code:
    # Print HTTP header and opening HTML tags.                           #
    print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
    print "<html>\n <head>\n";
    Any other suggestions???
    Thanks!

    catdude thank u

    When I run ./formmail.pl from terminal this is what I get
    bash: ./formmail.pl: /usr/bin/perl^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

    thanks

    It looks as if the formail.pl has been saved / uploaded with windows linebreaks. Please save the file again with unix linebreaks.

    catdude ISPConfig Developer

    As a cheap and dirty quick fix, especially if all you have to convert is a single file, zip the file (with zip, not gzip or bzip) then unzip it with the "-a" flag.

    For example:
    zip 1.zip formail.pl
    unzip -a 1.zip
    rm 1.zip

    You can also use the dos2unix command to convert the file to Unix linebreaks.
     
  17. onastvar

    onastvar Member

    I think I fixed linebreaks with zipping and unzippping the PL file. Now I'm getting this error in my suexec.log. When I run the script in firefox I get a blank page, when I run it in terminal entire script gets printer out. I tried to google error msg below with no luck or any helpful answers.

    [2008-05-24 10:34:47]: uid: (10005/web6_admin) gid: (10006/10006) cmd: formmail.pl
    [2008-05-24 10:34:47]: target uid/gid (10005/10006) mismatch with directory (10005/10006) or program (0/0)

    Are you using suExec? Can you post the vhost configuration of that web site? To what owner and group does the formail.pl script belong?
