Adding perl-cgi in apache 2.4
I need to enable perl-cgi for a specific directory local to a single site.

I uncommented cgi in http.conf

LoadModule cgid_module libexec/apache24/mod_cgid.so

In the conf for the site in question I have the following:

<directory "/usr/local/www/bi">
AllowOverride All
Require all granted
</Directory>
<Directory "/usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .pl .cgi
Order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>

When I try to go to the file at /usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local/b4.pl I get

> Internal Server Error
>
> The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
>
> Please contact the server administrator at admin@covisp.net to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.
>
> More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

in the http-error.log there is only:

[cgid:error] [pid 25120] (2)No such file or directory: AH01241: exec of '/usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local/b4.pl' failed
[Tue Jun 18 21:54:59.858842 2019] [cgid:error] [pid 24551] [client x.x.x.x:58890] End of script output before headers: b4.pl, referer: <the site>

However, the script itself hasn’t been modified in 15 years, so I don’t think the script itself is the problem and if I run it from the command line it outputs a regular html file (without the content since the flags that are normally passed on the URL are not present.

# perl cgi-local/b4.pl Content-type: text/html

Permissions on the executable/.plscript correct to run when called?

bad shebang in the file itself? Suspicious that you added "perl" in
front explicitly.

If you don't want to run it via its defined interpreter, which is what
mod_cgi does, you'd need something like Action to pass it as an
argument to some wrapper.

Permissions are the same they’ve been since 2004, 777.

It is a perl cgi, there is no shebang at all.

No, I very much do want to run it just as it has been run in the past.

Your original post log error indicated:

No such file or directory: AH01241: exec of '/usr/local/www/bi/cgi-
local/b4.pl' failed


Perhaps the path for cgi scripts has been changed/redifined from the
default in the apache config file

# ls -ls /usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local/b4.pl 16 -rwxrwxrwx 1 www wheel 4852 Jun 18 2004 /usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local/b4.pl

And I have that same path set in the <Directory> in the site’s conf file

<Directory "/usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local”>

I mean, I don’t think there’s a tyop there, but I’ve been known to miss them.

I just punted and rewrote the the script in php.

You only had to look into Teatime's mismatched eyes to know one thing,
which was this: if Teatime wanted to find you he would not look
everywhere. He'd look in only one place, which would be the place where
you were hiding. --Hogfather

My last comment. Maybe the perl interpreter wasn't in the same place
defined in the perl script header.

Oh Well. Nothing ventured. Nothing gained.
