   Internal Server Error

Question 

I receive an "Internal Server Error" when attempting to run a CGI script.

Answer 

The two most common causes of these errors are:

- A Perl script was not uploaded in ASCII mode. Because of differences in end-of-line conventions between different system these scripts must be uploaded in ASCII mode. Compiled programs, such as those written in C, must be uploaded in binary mode.

- The Perl path in the first line of the file is not correct. The correct path to use is listed in another document in this section.
