Subject [users@httpd] User cgi-bin doesn't work with 1.3.26, I'm stumped.
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2002 16:01:11 GMT
I'm using 1.3.26 from Debian testing feed:


And I'm having the strangest problem, cgi's that work just fine in system 
cgi-bin directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/ will not work in a user cgi-bin 
directory such as /home/ken/public_html/cgi-bin/  works  doesn't work

These are the exact same script:

temp:~# cat /home/ken/public_html/cgi-bin/bash.cgi 
echo "Content-Type: text/plain"
echo "Bash says 'Hello'"

temp:~# cat /usr/lib/cgi-bin/bash.cgi | md5sum | sed 
's/\-/\/home\/ken\/public_html\/cgi-bin\/bash.cgi/' | md5sum -cv
/home/ken/public_html/cgi-bin/bash.cgi OK

Copy of server config can be found at

All I get in error.log (even with LogLevel debug) is

[Mon Sep 16 10:56:46 2002] [error] [client] Premature end 
of script headers: /home/ken/public_html/cgi-bin/bash.cgi

ScriptLog output example:

Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1, utf-8;q=0.66, *;q=0.66
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, compress;q=0.9
Connection: keep-alive
Cookie: dtpref_rows="30"; dtpref_cols="40"
Keep-Alive: 300
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020615 

I can't figure this one out.  What else would you like to know?
