    Question [SOLVED] Help! Apache 500 server error!


    Okay, this is really hard for me to find out: 500 server error.
    This is what it says:
    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
    Apache/2.2.6 (Fedora)


    And the worse part is: I followed E-Blah's documentation and carefully checked what permissions to use. And I tried it out, but I get this message!

    So how do I fix this error. I checked Google Linux for this problem.

    And one more thing: I checked the Log, it says premature script header ending or something like that. I don't know what that means.

    Yes...Thank you.
    But now, I need to know HOW to upload a script using ASCII

    That should do it.

    I don't know that I have one.
    I can't find one for some oddball reason.

    Or maybe it's just me.

    how were you uploading it then if not by ftp? ftp will probably be your best best to upload it as ascii. filezilla is an excellent ftp client and works on windows and linux.

    Oh, well I see the difference then. I thought that setting the permissions for everything was uploading, but apparently not. Thanks...I can now look for filezilla!

    And now I boldy call this...SOLVED.


    EDIT: I had a problem so NOT SOLVED.

    Oh!
    I'm using filezilla, but I don't know my host name.
    How to find that out?

    Alright, I haven't realized that I don't need a FTP program.
    I'm the host of the server, therefore I have to find out how to make the CGI work another way.

    I want to make Blah.pl work, but how do I do it right?

    Exclamation I realized 1 way to do this!

    I think if I use form action the right way, I can very well make the .pl file work. But how do I make it work right?

    I don't know how this works. KINDA



    HEY! By the way, I can't upload the files with a program because my server is local and I can just move things to my DIR.
    But then how would I make this work then?
