While moving a website to Dreamhost, I encountered an unexpected problem with Perl scripts.
It seems the parsing of an HTML post request in a Perl script is triggering an error that I cannot figure out.
To test it, I wrote a simple script, which runs without a probblem, as long as it doesn’t have an HTML post request. When it does, such as script.cgi?dir=/units&pointer=0 it gives an error at the command line that says it cannot find the file, but at the error log, it says that it cannot open the log, followed by an error for fopen, saying that it cannot open the file because of “not authorized”
The thing is that I do not have any fopen function in the script. Where is this error message coming from? Is it trying to post the request somewhere, in some log that it cannot open? It does post to the error log.
Has anyone have this happen before?
TIA for your help.
