On August 4th there was a lot of chatter SQL queries and logins going across
the network and what a bad idea that is. There was discussion about CGIs and
Jacque's tutorial and other resources that I have now studied. I know I have
followed the steps (many times) but I can't get the Hello World script to work!
Here is my set up:
- I am using Mac OS X 10.6.4 and Web Sharing is on.
- I put copied the script from Jacque's tutorial into BBEdit,
saved it with Unix line endings (LF) and Unicode (UTF-8):
put "Content-type: text/plain" & cr & cr
put "Hello World!"
- I put this hello.cgi file into the /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables folder.
- I copied the standalone to the CGI-Executables folder from:
/Applications/Revolution Enterprise/4.0.0-gm-1/Runtime/Mac OS \
- I renamed it as revolution
- I used chmod 755 on both hello.cgi and revolution
- I call the script from FireFox 3.6.8 with
- In the browser I see:
Internal Server Error [...snip...]
- In the console I see:
[Tue Aug 10 17:56:16 2010] [error] [client ::1] Tue Aug 10 17:56:16 \
myMac.local revolution <Error>: kCGErrorFailure: Set a breakpoint @ \
CGErrorBreakpoint() to catch errors as they are logged.
[Tue Aug 10 17:56:16 2010] [error] [client ::1] Premature end of script \
I used the Terminal and ran: ./revolution ./hello.cgi but there is no output
Nothing works. What am I missing? Do I have to modify httpd.conf?
I put a simple perl script in the cgi-bin folder and it runs fine.
I even tried some php scripts and they run ok from the cgi-bin folder, too.
Any help would be appreciated!
