    CGI error

    Hello,

    I am using plesk control panel. When I access a hosting page which is using a perl script, it shows the error,

    CGI Error

    The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.

    What could be the reason. Any help from you guys will be very helpful to me.

    Regards,

    Is the Perl script written to use the CGI module? Perl scripts that run as CGI need to use the CGI perl module or they won't work.

    This requires a server admin to log on the server and check CGI settings.
    I don't think it's possible to fix the error with advice from forum.

    Add this to your code on top of your cgi file.

    Code:
    print "HTTP/1.0 200 OK\n";
       print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n\n";

    If that does not work, contact a server admin.

    Also, I should point out the Perl needs to be an allowed Web Extension in the IIS configuration. If you installed ActivePerl, it should have set this all up for you.
