IE 5 Doesn't work with my web site.
Posted on 2000-03-01
I have CGI scripts(written in perl) that have been running for over 2 years with no problems. Now with internet explorer 5 they don't work right. The problem seems to be with post operations. The server just sends back a 500 error message "Internal Server Error".
I'm thinking the data isn't even getting to my script. The data never shows in the databases, and my program gives more details when it has an error.
There is nothing more descriptive in the logs either.
The webserver is Apache, but I'm not sure what version off hand.
I'll see if I can setup a test site, in the next day or so if nessesary. I don't want to test on a live site.
I have unconfirmed reports that IE 5.5 works ok. But I can find nothing in the knowledge base about a bug related to this.
