Subject [users@httpd] 500 Internal Server Error pages being rendered as markup
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2005 02:20:32 GMT
I've upgraded to Apache 2.2.0 for *nix and I've come across a wierd behavior 
dealing with the 500 error page - it's being displayed on the browser as html 
code. I have not done any configuration in regards to error documents and 
this was not happening on version 2.0.55 which also did not have any error 
document configuration. All other error pages are rendering normally (such as 
400 errors, etc...). To make sure it wasn't some configuration I missed, I 
used the httpd.conf in the original directory and restarted apache and the 
problem still existed with the original httpd.conf file. I guess, my 
questions are, is this a known issue and is there a workaround for getting 
the 500 error document to render correctly? I was on the #apache IRC room and 
there wasn't much help for me there as I tried to get someone else to 
reconfirm this. The easiest way to see this, which I was doing, was to change 
the permissions of a script in cgi-bin to 644 and then try to access the 

Thanks for your time in this matter.
