Subject [users@httpd] Adding perl-cgi in apache 2.4
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2019 04:03:20 GMT

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/

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

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

When I try to go to the file at /usr/local/www/bi/cgi-local/ 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 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/'
[Tue Jun 18 21:54:59.858842 2019] [cgid:error] [pid 24551] [client x.x.x.x:58890] End of script
output before headers:, 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/
