Is it significant that

http://perlmaven.com/perl-cgi-script-with-apache2

refers to the failure mode seen?

Please note, we don't create this inside the /var/www directory on purpose. This way, even if misconfigure the server it won't serve the source code of the script. Which is a good thing.

I think the problem is to do with default include paths, from looking at the server errors for some of the accounts.

Others may well be serving up the source code, if I've not turned Perl on for them yet. First I have to get it working properly, and it's about 100 years since I last did lots of fiddling with Perl

Ah; now I see the problem

FWIW, the problem appears using Chrome and IE.

Been on holiday......

- I was trying to avoid posting the same info in multiple places.


Sorry, I wasn't very clear.

Here is a link to the issues

http://www.toppy.org.uk/~mystuff/

The most frustrating part is that the link to the MyStuff downloads gives a server error instead of links to the downloads.

Fortunately, I found some direct links posted on another thread.

I'm using Firefox, BTW.

I'm working on it, but Plesk (as usual) is being a right bastard

I think the MyStuff page is now ok, and hopefully the others too.

Let me know if anyone spots any misbehaving CGIs. Just, please, don't look at Plesk in a funny way or it'll break again.

Wow, that was quick!

Looking much better from a first click!

Was the whole site down a 2-3 hours ago, too?
I got a "server not responding" which fixed itself in a few mins

There will have been a few glitches here and there, as I was also fighting with Plesk to get the https support on one of the others sites on the server working properly and with adequate security.

Unfortunately, Plesk has an annoying habit of one thing breaking another all too often.

Also, a note for those who do have web space, after some tests, we've worked out that the psftp client will work with the increased security now in use on the site, for uploading files to your webspace.
