I am out of ideas

#1 Postby GMC » Jul 31, 2010 11:12 am

Hi

Reinstalling the script on a new server

getting the dreaded 500 internal server error

What I have tried

1. chmod the install.cgi file to 755 and 777

2. added a test cgi file to the cgi-bin and ensure it worked - it did

3. made sure the index.html file was visible - it was

4. commented out all 6 lines of .htaccess file

5. renamed all .htaccess files to .htaccess.bak

6. Ensured the Allow override all is enabled

and still the same error

Anyone else have any ideas on what I can try to get this to work

Cheers

GMC

Are you using any control panel?

It's fairly easy to dianoise internal 500 errors.

Try to run the perl script from ssh, this will show you if you are missing any dependancy. If not then it is mostly you forgot to specify script alias.

if you use cpanel
be sure to cmod the cgi files to 755 (only cgi files in the cgi bin)

else cgi wont be able to execute and it give a 500 error to

i dint readed that step in your log , so maybe it can help

a 500 error mostly means that it was unable to execute/run or that there are parts missing that are needed to run (unable to read)

I changed pernissions on all directories and "most" of the files within the cgi-bin

same result

I have email support so they can have a look for me

Cheers and thanks for you help
