Hi All,
I am trying to access a webpage using LWP::UserAgent module but i am receiving "500 Internal Server error" message.  I have full access to the webpage and also i am ableto access the web page manually thru a web browser.  Also, the code appears to work with other sites which have developed by me and my collegues except for this page.  Please assist!!!

The code probably works in your browser because it is more forgiving ... try looking in the error logs to see what the problem is.

It is likely that you aren't sending the information in the exact way the server is expecting.  If you are trying to fill out forms, and submit information, you might want to use the WWW::Mechanize module instead, which makes it easier to do this kind of stuff.

Some website block the useragents other than the well known web browsers

LWP::UserAgent has the default agent "libwww-perl/#.###",

you may need to set the agent to mozilla, i.e

 $ua->agent('Mozilla/5.0');
