I have a perl script to get a database value and print on browser.This script is running successfully Linux Server.But when i run this script in windows server it gives HTTP header error.i use WINDOWS 2003 IIs 6.0 web server and Perl 5.8.8 and mysql 5.0.
#!C:/bin/perl.exe  -w
use DBI;
#definition of variables
$db="music";
$host="localhost";
$user="username";
$password="pass";
 
 
print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";
 
#connect to MySQL database
my $dbh   = DBI->connect ("DBI:mysql:database=$db:host=$host",
                          $user,
                          $password) 
                          or die "Can't connect to database: $DBI::errstr\n";
 
#prepare the query
my $sth = $dbh->prepare( "SELECT * FROM trackinfo");
 
#execute the query
$sth->execute( );
## Retrieve the results of a row of data and print
print "\tQuery results:\n================================================\n";
 
while ( my @row = $sth->fetchrow_array( ) )  {
     print "@row\n";
}
warn "Problem in retrieving results", $sth->errstr( ), "\n"
        if $sth->err( );

Are you sure that IIS is configured to execute Perl scripts?

Do you have other Perl scripts that are working as expected, or do they all have this problem?

Have you checked the IIS log to see if it provides any clues to the problem?

Change the beginning of the script to this and report back with the exact error message.

#!C:/bin/perl.exe  -w
 
use CGI::Carp qw/FatalsToBrowser/;
use DBI;
#definition of variables

Best to use the CGI module as some IIS setups require NPH.

Change the top of your script to
use DBI;
use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';
use CGI ':standard';
 
print header;

Thanks for your reply,
Actually some the programs are working but most of the programs is  simply print the same header error.
could you suggest  possible configuration errors and server errors.Also some program which is using session are gives some error

This is an entirely separate issue from your original question.  It would be best to separate these issues into 2 separate questions.

It appears that both of these separate issues have a couple things in common.  The first being that they are not running under strictures i.e they're missing

use strict;

Also, it's better to use/load the warnings pragma instead of  the -w switch as you have in your first code snippet.

use warnings;

You haven't specified the exact error message that you're receiving, but if you're receiving a "500 internal server error then that's caused by the script sending output, usually an error message, before outputting the headers.  If you add the line that I and Tintin suggested to the beginning of your script(s) (use Tintin's, mine had a slight typo), it should output a more descriptive error message in the browser.

Add this as the second line in your program(the first beginning with #!), which was suggested earlier.  

use CGI::Carp 'fatalsToBrowser';

Line 81 has a problem.  After you add the CGI::Carp line that we've suggested, take a close look at problematic line.
