When I run this simple perl script from web....

#!/usr/bin/perl
open(SENDMAIL, &|/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -odi&) or die &error: $!\n&;
print SENDMAIL &&&EOF&;
From: TestFrom &info\@domain.com&
To: test &test\@domain.com&
Subject: mail test
test
eof
close (SENDMAIL) or die &sendmail didn't close nicely&;
exit;


... I receive an internal server error (however I receive the Email) .
If I execute above script from command line it works fine , no error . Why ? Thanks

Your script is not printing anything to the browser, not even sending a header..

Try adding..

print &Content-type: text/html\n\n&;
print &Hello World&;

to the bottom (before the exit;)..

with perl scripts, it's end task is to display something... when your web browser requests the page, it asks for something back. Since the Perl script has nothing to display to the web browser, it just crashes out like you showed...

So just remember, perl must ALWAYS have a content-type, and must always output something when a browser calls ;)

ok now works ;)

Now , I am trying to execute a cron job on it but it doesn't work.
Perhaps because there are anti spam restrictions ?
