    problems in cgi-bin


    Well, it's time for my annual question in here as no one in IRC had the solution!!

    I have setup my own cgi irc install, which works fine. The problem is that the pictures for close/help (in the top right hand corner) dont show. I checked the paths to these, they're ok. So i tried to load a picture, and it gets this:

    Server error!

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

    Error message:
    Premature end of script headers: helpup.gif

    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
    Error 500

    Now i am no expert or anything... but i dont think "helpup.gif" should be seen as a script lol. Anyone know why this could be treated as being a script causing it to act like this? And more importantly, how i can get it to show the pics!

    Your image is probably in a directory that is configured to house scripts, and likely has it's permission bits set to 755.

    In Apache, if directory is specified on a ScriptAlias directive, the server assumes any files in that directory are scripts and tries to execute them.

    You need to move your images elsewhere and update your links accordingly.
