Subject RE: I need help with CGI Environment Variables.
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2002 14:14:42 GMT
Thank You very much for your help.  I thought that since the html page
contained CGI, it should go in the cgi-bin dir.  It does work from the
htdocs dir.

Traditionally HTML files are not scripts.
Are you sure this file should be in the cgi-bin?  If you are, then try
running the script manually to see if you can execute it
yourprompt] /home/sites/runningroom/cgi-bin/ClinicQuestion.html 
Does the script actually execute?  If not, then that is your problem.
I would imagine that you really don't want this to be a script.  You
probably want it to go into your public_html directory instead.

Hello All,
           I am hoping that someone can help me.  I am new to Apache and
am having a problem.
           I am running Apache 1.3 on Red Hat 7.2.  I am having problems
displaying on of my pages that is located in my cgi-bin directory.  When
I try to display it on the client side, it gives me a:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was
unable to complete your request. 
Please contact the server administrator, and
inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have
done that may have caused the error. 
More information about this error may be available in the server error
The error log states:
[Tue Jun  4 11:28:53 2002] [error] (8)Exec format error: exec of
/home/sites/runningroom/cgi-bin/ClinicQuestion.html failed
[Tue Jun  4 11:28:53 2002] [error] [client] Premature end
of script headers: /home/sites/runningroom/cgi-bin/ClinicQuestion.html
I did find something in he FAQ's section.
I have made sure that all the permissions are correct..  I have gone as
far a giving full access.  Still no go.  My next step is to add
environment variables to the module mod_env.  I have read a lot but am
having difficulty understanding what to enter in my httpd.conf file to
make this work.
Please help!!!
