Perl scripts on napoleon.dreamhost.com?


#1

Hi,

Is anyone else on napoleon.dreamhost.com? If so, are you having problems running Perl scripts or is it just me?

Everything was working OK, but suddenly something simple like:

[code]#!/usr/bin/perl

print “Content-type: text/html\n\n”;
print “OK”;
[/code]gives a 500 error. Nothing useful in the logs and the same script works OK on another machine.

Cheers,
Ian

Finally figured it out. The Perl script was in a secondary group, not the user’s primary group. I’ve no idea why that stopped the script working though. Anyone seen anything similar?

Please see my response in the other thread where you cross-posted the same question.

Yeah, sorry about that. I couldn’t decide whether or not to cross-post, but in the end decided it was relevant to both threads. For other people reading this, the other thread is here.
