I have a perl classified script which i have configured and hosted on the server. But it does not execute and the error is Error 500 - Internal Server Error, and it says, Premature end of Script Headers. What could be the problem?

This error means that "Content-type: text/html\n\n" is not the first thing being printed out by your script.  Either something else is printing out first (possibly an error message), or your script is dying and not printing anything at all out.  Try placing the

  print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"

command at the very front of the program and see if the error continues.  You could also try running the program manually from the command line (i.e. not as a CGI script) and try to figure out what is getting printed out before the content type.

Hope this helps.

Well, when i try to execute the script from the perl interpreter, it first prints bad command and file name twice and then prints out the output starting from the line Content Type: text/html and then the html output is printed out. But let me try by using the line that is "Content-Type: text/html\n\n" at the very front of the program.
