Netscape Enterprise 3.5 & Perl CGI
Posted on 1998-10-07
Hello all, I've been (previously) running my servers
on Unix boxes, or Win 95/NT running Sambar (which is cool).
However, now I'm toying with Netscape Enterprise,
and can't get the thing to run my perl programs....
I have the .PL file extension associated with a PERL exe
on my system (I have two, one from Netscape & one from Sambar), and I have followed the server docs to set up
a "magnus-internal/shellcgi" MIME type and point it to
a relevant directory...
I am either getting :
[07/Oct/1998:09:54:06] failure: for host 126.96.36.199 trying to GET /cgi-bin/phone.pl, cgi-parse-output reports: the CGI program D:\Netscape\SuiteSpot\install\perl.exe did not produce a valid header (program terminated without a valid CGI header (check for core dump or other abnormal termination)
Or I'm getting a white screen with NO output.
Running from the command prompt is fine, and here is
the (first part of the) output :
And so on.....
So am I missing another HTTP header? Sambar didnt argue
with it, and neither do any of the Unix boxes...
The .PL extension is set up as follows :
Open with :
Do I need any %1 %s info on the end of that?
I've tried matching the MIME types to no avail....
Any help appreciated....
