    I use CentOs 5.2, installed like "perfect server how-to". Yesterday I decided to use cgi script and found that they wan't run.

    In terminal i run simple script "hello world"
    and it shows me "hello"

    But when I try to run it from web browser, I receive 500 error.
    In logfile is message "Premature end of script Headers".

    I make that by VI in terminal, did't upload or copy it.

    Please, help me.

    Am guessing that your script is not sending the corrent content type headers.

    Here is script:

    print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
    print <<END_HTML;
    <body>Hello, World!</body>

    okay i thought u were not printing the content header, take a look at your httpd and audit logs, i suspect selinux could be blocking the action.

    Did you set executable permissions on the script ?

    chmod +x script_name

    24 hours later, problem WAS SOLVED!!!

    The reason was next strings in apache config:

    RLimitCPU 80 90
    RLimitMEM 3800 4800
    RLimitNPROC 80 90

    As I commented it, all begin to works fine.

    Can anyone explain me, why?
