I try to run a perl script in my webserver. Therefore I put a script in the /var/www/cgi-bin/ directory. I have put the 777 permission on it. Here is the script :

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><head><title>Hello World!! </title></head>\n";
print "<body><h1>Hello world</h1></body></html>\n";

The 'better way, from the CGI man page:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use CGI;
use strict;

my $q = new CGI;

print $q->header,                    # create the HTTP header
       $q->start_html('hello world'), # start the HTML
       $q->h1('hello world'),         # level 1 header
       $q->end_html;                  # end the HTML

Thank you for your answer. I change the code to the one you gave me.

When i do "perl hello.pl" it prints the right html without any error.

When i try to run it with apache, here is the error in the browser : "Internal Server Error" and in the log : "[Tue Jan 16 09:26:01 2007] [error] [client my ip adress] Premature end of script headers: hello.pl"

Here is the vhost.conf configuration for this host :

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/default/duck-art.com/user/htdocs/cgi-bin/
        <Directory "/home/default/duck-art.com/user/htdocs/cgi-bin">
            AllowOverride None
            Options None
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all

Try quoting the directory in the ScriptAlias definition.
It really does look like the script is not executing.

Possibilities other than ScriptAlias definition:

all directories up to and including the cgi-bin directory must be readable by the web service user -- usually apache
   The executable files in cgi-bin should be 755

Other configuration possibilities:

   AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
is used, it changes the behavior a bit. perl scripts then should end with .cgi

   LoadModule cgi_module modules/mod_cgi.so
is NOT used, then it will change cgi behavior

There may be others.

Good luck!
