Subject Re: error reporting
Date Thu, 13 Jun 1996 21:37:13 GMT
I've thought about better error reporting for "Server Error" (which
almost always means "CGI screwup" in practice).  The most obvious thing
that could be done would be to have some kind of more specific report
in the entity body --- something about the specific type of error.
However, I would *not* want to go as far as including the actual error
messages which wound up in error_log --- if a cracker has found a script,
gotten it to fail, and wants it to fail in more "useful" ways, that sort
of thing can provide dangerous guidance.
