I've got 2 cgi files in my cgi-bin that will not run via http (they run fine command line). I cannot get ANY cgi files to run in cgi-bin via http...
http://www.bigtrue.com/cgi-bin/header.cgi (a php based script)
http://www.bigtrue.com/cgi-bin/header2.cgi (a perl based script)

They are as simple as can be, but just won't run. I keep getting a 500 error. When looking at the logs, Premature End Of Script Headers. I've checked permissions, file type (unix vs windows linefeeds), syntax, spaces, etc... I am totally lost!
Header.cgi :

#!/usr/local/bin/php
<?php
echo 'Content-type: text/html'.chr(10);
echo 'HTTP/1.1 200 OK'.chr(10);
echo '';
echo 'TEST!';
?>
Header2.cgi

#!/usr/local/bin/perl
print 'Content-type: text/html\n\n';
print 'THIS IS A TEST';
for the php script, I also tried using the header() function, with the same results...

Have you checked the error that Apache is reporting while executing these scripts? You can check the apache error log at /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log but it requires root access.

Yes I have... All it says is "Premature End Of Script Headers"...

Well, I created them in VI, and they do have permissions of 755. I assume that VI defaults to ASCII. This is why I am lost...

ircmaxell: have You solved the problem? I have the same thing on 2 of my servers.
Bash scripts don't run either. I have noticed that compiled ELF executables run just fine..
