Error: The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.
Posted by Admin on 15 July 2005 08:51 AM
We make a standard install of ActiveState Perl on all our servers to enable customers to run Perl scripts. One of the frequent questions we get asked is why when the Perl script is accessed it gives this error: "The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers"

Please try the following...

  1. Make sure the script is named *.pl
  2. Check the script is compatible with Windows and IIS (our web servers)
  3. Make sure you have filled in all appropriate variable correctly
  4. Contact the author for assistance.



If you do not believe the script is at error, you can try the following simple test script to see if Perl is active on your domain:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<H1>Hello World</H1>\n";
