Subject Re: [users@httpd] Premature end of script headers
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2006 14:27:08 GMT
Hi,

Apache requires CGI scripts to generate their own Content-type headers. Try

#!/usr/bin/perl
print "Content-type: text/plain\n\nHello";

This should work.

Best

Subject: [users@httpd] Premature end of script headers


All of my perl scripts generate this error when I try to have Apache
serve them.  I'm on RHEL with Apache 2.0.52.

The simplest script I have is:
#!/usr/bin/perl
print "Hello";

In the error log I'm told:
[Tue Feb 21 08:57:48 2006] [error] [client 10.33.1.32] Premature end
of script headers: hello.cgi

I've tried changing LogLevel from warn to debug and still only get this 
message.

In httpd.conf, I load cgi_module (mod_cgi.so) at the beginning as well
as suexec_module (mod_suexec.so).

I also set the following:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
<Directory "/var/www/cgi-bin">
    AllowOverride None
    # Options None
    Options ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

in /var/www, when I do ls -lh I get
drwxr-xr-x  2 root      root 4.0K Feb 21 08:53 cgi-bin

in /var/www/cgi-bin, when I do ls -l I get
-rwxr-xr-x  1 apache apache 32 Feb 20 16:01 hello.cgi

I have tried changing the owner and group of hello.cgi It was at first
both root and I changed it to apache (which is what httpd runs as).

I've tried changing the location of the cgi-bin directory.  I've tried
to change the name of the file to just hello (dropping the cgi
extension).  I've changed permissions on both the file and the cgi-bin
directory (when I do that, it will sometimes complain in suexec.log
that something is writable by others).  I've tried not loading suexec,
but that doesn't change the result.

I don't know what to do at this point.  What should I try next?

Thanks in advance,

Tom
