I have a perl hello world programme which executes fine from the command line. I wont post the code as it’s a simple script and it’s working fine.
However, when I follow the url http://mydomain.com/script.pl I get a 500 internal server error. I have chmod the file/directory in accordance with http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Suexec Is there an apache configuration I have overlooked? I had understood cgi scripts run from any directory at DreamHost. Perhaps it’s because I am trying to access the file directly?
