    Donhost errors

    I get a lot of "500 internal server errors" when installing perl scripts. Also get the same with .htaccess files.

    Anyone else notice this with Donhost, or is it just me!

    Are you uploading the files in ASCII or Binary form? Make sure its ASCII.

    If you are using Internet Explorer, please do the following:

    Go to "Tools" - "Internet Options" - "Advanced" - make sure "Show friendly HTTP error messages" is not ticked.

    Now go back to the page where you are getting the 500 internal server and it should now show a more detailed error message. Post that in this thread and I am sure we can help

    Thanks for the quick replies!

    I have some experience of installing scripts with other hosts. It just seems to be the Donhost ones that have this problem.

    I was wondering if others had noticed this too?

    I know they have a few scripts already installed. Have you set your CGI bin permissions correctly?

    have you checked with donhost? steve rose is a good guy, usually helpful.
    They dont really like cgi scripts so they could somehow be blocking it.
    I tried to change what was my homepage with .htaccess but its blocked

    - Make sure you have the correct path to perl
    - check the directory permissions
    - chmod the file to 755
    - are you running it from the cgi-bin folder?

    It's not donhost anyway cos I'm running a guest book just fine.
