500 Internal Server Error (416)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-02-21 17:46 ID:FqgLpoAw (Replies) [Del]

Since 500 Internal Server Errors aren't ever really caused by Wakaba or Kareha themselves, but are still a big problem for lots of people, I'm setting up this thread to discuss various problems and solutions related to them.

2 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-02-21 17:54 ID:FqgLpoAw (Replies) [Del]

Firstly, things that often cause Internal Server Errors:

  • Wrong permissions on the .pl files. They should have 755 permissions. NOT 777, because that may cause some servers to refuse to run them.
  • Incorrect hashbang. Most of the time, the default #!/usr/bin/perl is the correct one, but sometimes Perl is installed elsewhere. In that case, you will have to find out where, and change the hashbang. On Windows servers, it should often be changed to #!perl.
  • Incorrect options set up for CGI scripts. The configuration for the directory should contain Options +ExecCGI and AddHandler cgi-handler .pl. SOMETIMES, but definitely not always, this can be put into the .htaccess file. See the next point.
  • A broken .htaccess file. Spelling errors, trying to use modules that are not installed, or trying to use options that have been forbidden elsewhere will all cause Internal Server Errors.
  • An incorrect mod_suexec install. Mod_suexec is very temperamental, and getting it to allow running of Perl scripts at all is very hard. Don't ask me, I have no idea how to configure it.

Secondly, things that DO NOT cause Internal Server Errors:

  • Wakaba or Kareha themselves. Unless you've horribly mangled the scripts by hand, they will never cause an Internal Server Error. The only thing in the script file itself that can cause problems is the hashbang on the first line.
  • Wakaba configuration. As a consequence of the above, no matter how badly you configure it, it should not cause an Internal Server Error.
  • Missing software or modules. Missing mysql or ImageMagick will cause errors, but not Internal Server Errors. A missing Perl might, though, but that's not very likely to be a problem.

4 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-02-21 18:01 ID:FqgLpoAw (Replies) [Del]

Third, what to do when you get Internal Server Errors?

  • Look at error_log. Internal Server Errors often generate two or more lines in the log file, make sure you read them all.
  • Try the Perl test script:

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
    print "<html><body><h1>Perl is working!</h1></body></html>";

    If this doesn't run, work with the server config until it runs, and only when it does, get to work on Wakaba.

  • If you are sure you've got the permissions and hashbang right, ask your admin about what you need to do to get CGI scripts running.

I'm getting this error when I run wakaba.pl

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.

Error message:
Premature end of script headers: wakaba.pl

I am not quite sure what is causing this

8 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2005-12-22 05:16 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>7

Perhaps you should try reading >>1-4?

9 Name: Anonymous : 2005-12-22 12:57 ID:M2ggLmkd [Del]

I read 1-4 and applied your suggested fixes under those 5 paragraphs of reasons it would have internal error. I am still encountering the same problems even though the server is configured to run CGI natively.

10 Name: narunet!parlrLMFwQ : 2006-01-02 01:00 ID:8TjWRFyR [Del]

Yeah, I did the same thing as he did but I cant get it working.....

I just recently moved to a new webserver and perl does work... I used the test script to find that out.

11 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-01-02 06:01 ID:FSFjgm0j [Del]

And what does the error_log say?

12 Name: narunet!parlrLMFwQ : 2006-01-02 21:17 ID:8TjWRFyR [Del]

I fixed it...
For some reason I had to replace all the wakaba files except for the config.....

13 Name: Anonymous : 2006-02-22 17:23 ID:DjW7qxze [Del]

I feel stupid here, but I just keep getting:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /kareha/kareha.pl on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Even when I set everything to 777.

14 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-02-22 17:51 ID:Heaven [Del]

Do you have permission to access /kareha/?

15 Name: Anonymous : 2006-02-22 17:59 ID:DjW7qxze [Del]

I do indeed.

16 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-02-22 18:13 ID:Heaven [Del]

You shouldn't set everything to 777. The scripts should be 755. Some Apache installations will flat out refuse to run scripts set to 777, because of security issues. They may even refuse to run scripts in directories set to 777.

17 Name: Anonymous : 2006-02-22 20:05 ID:DjW7qxze [Del]

Well, of course I tried 755 first, same error. I'll try to set them back.

18 Name: Anonymous : 2006-02-22 20:11 ID:DjW7qxze [Del]

And zero change.

19 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-02-22 20:23 ID:Heaven [Del]

What I mean is, do you get a 500 when accessing /kareha/? If the wrong execute bit is off in the dir permission, even though you can physically navigate in there on the filesystem, apache won't let you view it.

20 Name: Anonymous : 2006-02-22 20:30 ID:DjW7qxze [Del]

When I go to /kareha/ I can see everything in there, go into all the folders, view the css files, view txt files, etc, etc.

21 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-02-22 22:03 ID:Heaven [Del]

Does the test perl script in >>4 work?

IIRC, Apache takes a couple of configuration steps to run CGI, not just one.

22 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-02-22 22:05 ID:Heaven [Del]

Unrelated: what's up with the "reply" links next to the IDs in earlier posts of this thread?

Did that feature get removed?

25 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-02-23 08:38 ID:Heaven [Del]

Yes. It kind of sucked.

26 Name: Anonymous : 2006-03-01 08:09 ID:YSlq56iY [Del]

Okay, I'm having some problems. I'm testing out kareha (3.0.9) on my Linux home server with Apache 2 before actually making a proper site. I was having some permission-related 500 errors, and now all dir permissions are fixed. I can view kareha/ and its subdirectories as well as look at non-executable files in them as text, like example.htaccess and the css templates. Running kareha.pl from a broweser, however returns a 500 error still, though not because it cannot write or read a certain directory. Here's some relevant info from error_log:

(Hope that formats correctly.)

This seems related to the path specified in kareha.pl: use lib '.';. I assume it isn't expanding . to the dir in which kareha.pl is situated. If I edit kareha.pl and input the full path, it still doesn't work. I didn't really think it would. Disabling suexec does nothing as well. test.pl works in kareha/, so mod_perl seems to be fine.

I apologise if I'm missing something obvious, but I'm sort of at a dead end at the moment. Help would be appreciated :)

27 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-03-01 12:06 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>26

Your problem is most likely that you're using mod_perl, if I read that correctly. It is theoretically possible to run Kareha on mod_perl, but it requires some tweaks, and I've never gotten around to testing it properly.

28 Name: Anonymous : 2006-03-01 14:43 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>27
Oh, okay. Thanks very much. Mod_perl was a bit of a pain, anyway. Guess it'll be easier to get kareha up than I thought.

Thanks very much for this wonderful piece of software.

I get an Internal Server error, but everything is fine. I have tried everything here and asked my host for help. I was told to put perl scripts into my cgi-bin folder. I did this but it still failed to help the situation. I think im using mod_perl, what are the "tweaks" that need to be made exactly.

30 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-08 19:06 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>29

Did you try the test script in >>4, outside cgi-bin and inside it?

Also, some hosts only allow you to run CGI scripts in cgi-bin, but then don't let you access normal files in there. Yet other hosts don't let you run perl scripts in directories that are writeable.

You need to gather some more information about what exactly you have and haven't done before we can really help you. Also, look at your server's error_log and see what it says (and remember that you may have several different problems).

i've been having issues with the cgi bin and .pl files too, i'm an awfull programmer so i have no clue what to do to fix this problem. I'm really only sponsoring the board that me and a few freinds are trying to make and i don't have a programmer anymore
is there anyone here who wants to come and join up as a programmer for my board?

I tried the test script both outside cgi-bin and inside and it doesnt work. I get an internal server error both times.

I have contacted my host but they say they cant help with issues like this, that I (the administrator) should locate the problem and fix it, but my knowlage of cgi is limited.

And what else?

38 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-11 06:46 ID:/7KxcVR+ [Del]

Thats actually pretty much it. The entire error is:

And thats it nothing else

39 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-11 08:11 ID:Heaven [Del]

There are usually two errors, first the real one, and then the "Premature end of script headers" that is caused by the previous error.

40 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-11 09:55 ID:/7KxcVR+ [Del]

Yeah thats all i get in relation to executing the kareha.pl script, the only other error is that there is no html page like internal_server_error.html to display the fact that there is an Internal Server error.

41 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-11 11:57 ID:Heaven [Del]

What error does the test script give?

42 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-11 12:39 ID:/7KxcVR+ [Del]

I get the exact some error with the perl test script, Premature end of script headers. I am with Dreamhost currently.

43 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-11 13:54 ID:Heaven [Del]

Well, then I have no idea except that something is severely broken.

Ok thanks for your help anyway

45 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-13 17:09 ID:foOVIXWQ [Del]

my hosting provider only allows .pl to be run from cgi-bin folder. test.pl runs well there and does not run outside.
But it does not allow html files to be read from cgi-bin. what can I do? I'm a programmer, so I'm willing to tweak kareha to write html files to another directory if that's the solution. thanks.

46 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-13 21:12 ID:duJ3R4Bl [Del]

I still haven't tried to do this, but a first guess for a solution would be:

  1. Add a chdir "/path/to/html/files"; at the top, possibly in a BEGIN statement.
  2. Edit the expand_filename() function to add the web-side path to your HTML files instead of the path used by the script.

47 Name: Anonymous : 2006-05-29 08:35 ID:Heaven [Del]

on dreamhost change the directory of kareha to 755, otherwise it won't run.

48 Name: Anonymous : 2006-06-05 23:05 ID:XP0iVwhl [Del]

Also try uploading your .pl files in ASCII mode. I have to, for some reason.

49 Name: Anonymous : 2006-06-06 00:30 ID:Heaven [Del]

I just

wget http://wakaba.c3.cx/releases/kareha_3.1.0.zip
unzip kareha_3.1.0.zip

on dreamhost. Easy!
Of course then you go on about copying shit from there to there changing permissions. blah.

50 Name: Anonymous : 2006-06-19 22:23 ID:eGcnT5NR [Del]

I'm trying to install Kareha. If I use mode image and run kareha.pl with a bad config file, I'll get the Software error page that says that no ADMINPASS has been specified. When I upload a good config file and run kareha.pl again, I get an Internal Server Error. A couple of HTML pages index.html and subback.html get created when I do that. That test script also gives me an Internal Server Error.

By the way, I got "Abnormal Reply" multiple times before being able to submit this post.

51 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-20 04:25 ID:xeIogjHJ [Del]

>>50

Your server setup is broken. I don't know how exactly, but if the test script does not work, that's pretty much the only option. Make sure that .pl files are handled by cgi-handler, and not something else.

Also, the "Abnormal Reply" is caused by an Opera bug. I'll try to get a workaround for that for the next version. Click "More options..." and select a formatting to work around it in the meantime.

52 Name: Dudeman : 2006-08-09 19:47 ID:i8+rV1Hi [Del]

I keep getting:
No ADMIN_PASS defined in the configuration at config_defaults.pl line 8.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at config_defaults.pl line 133.
Compilation failed in require at kareha.pl line 13.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at kareha.pl line 13.

After i've uploaded all the files(minus mode_image) since I'm doing the message board. I've also tried changing permissions to 755, that's what got me this far :P. I HAVE changed the admin pass and secret in the config.pl. The secret code is the result of me banging on the keyboard like a monkey.

Is somethign wrong with the config file?

That's not a 500 Internal Server Error. Also, remove the # at the start of the lines you change in config.pl.

54 Name: Anonymous : 2006-08-15 09:40 ID:+irrqMmK [Del]

Adding "use lib '/var/www/localhost/htdocs/wakaba';" in wakaba.pl (adjust for whatever directory wakaba is located) helped to avoid the errors with 'require'.

55 Name: DRK : 2006-08-23 08:52 ID:EHXGGFLt [Del]

Ok, 500 Internal Server Error. The following is what I knows...

**Server is all local, on my box. Apache 2.0.59, ActivePerl 5.8.8, MySql 4.1, and PHP 5.1.5 are all that is installed and all functioning correctly.
**Test perl script anywhere on my domain works. I moved it to my wakaba directory just to be sure, still ok.
**Hashbang is copy/pasted from the test script which works to wakaba.pl so that should be set correctly.

**ONLY thing in my error.log (other than server boot up info) is..

**D:/Perl/lib/CGI/Carp.pm there is indeed a file at that location

Still get the 500 error when I try to open wakaba.pl. Any help appreciated greatly.

56 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-08-23 10:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

Sounds like a broken install. It's trying to use mod_perl files when mod_perl is not installed (I take it?). It's trying to print some other error message, and failing.

You can try removing the use CGI::Carp ... line at the start of the script, and then look at the error_log again, maybe.

57 Name: DRK : 2006-08-23 18:16 ID:EHXGGFLt [Del]

Same error with that line removed. Would installing mod_perl be a good idea at this point (no, it was not installed)

58 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-08-23 18:28 ID:sQ1Tof14 [Del]

Same error in the error_log too? That's pretty weird.

Wakaba doesn't work with mod_perl, but maybe if you installed it and didn't actually use it, just so that it could find that damn file... Hell, I dunno, that's all mighty strange.

59 Name: DRK : 2006-08-23 18:53 ID:EHXGGFLt [Del]

Ok, I slightly lied. Log file after that change shows...

Ok, that's something I can work with: It seems you haven't installed DBI. Use ppm to install DBI and the mysql driver for it.

61 Name: DRK : 2006-08-24 05:34 ID:EHXGGFLt [Del]

Ok, thanks very mucho for your support so far. On that note...

I'm a bit of a newb to all this. I know my way around, but perl confuzzles me. I searched for a program called ppm on my computer, found it, and ran it. Tried typing 'install dbi' as that seemed to be what google instructed me to do. Got the following message:

ppm> install dbi
Error: No valid repositories: Error: 500 Can't connect to
ppm.ActiveState.com:80 (connect: Unknown error)

Perhaps I'm typing in something wrong or there is an easier way?

And as for mysql drivers I again must claim ignorance. I'll google it when I wake up, but if it's easy to explain, it'd be a tremendous help.

62 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-08-24 07:08 ID:xeIogjHJ [Del]

>>61

Sounds like you've firewalled off the machine or something. Try to get ppm to work, and then you should be able to just do install DBI and install DBD::mysql or something like that.

63 Name: DRK : 2006-08-24 07:39 ID:EHXGGFLt [Del]

Ok, turned of firewall in windows and on my router. Everything I expect to work works fine.

PPM started working. "Successfully installed DBD-mysql version 3.0002 in ActivePerl 5.8.8.817.". Same message for DBI. An attemt to install again shows that they are indeed both installed.

Error message remains the same as in >>59

Wow: update as I type this. I deleted the DBI.pm in my D:/perl/lib. Seems when it couldn't find it (long ago) I tried to manually copy it there. After I deleted it, and reinstalled DBI, it works fine. You my friend, are my hero.

That's not a 500 Internal Server Error.

Also, that references mod_perl, which Wakaba does not support, and also sounds sort of like all files are not in place.

Hi, i recently installed a board with the purpose of making a oekaki board for my web. i installed all and set 755 the .pl files but i got the 500 internal error, i tried seting the ./wakaba/ directory to 755 as well and the script works but the oekaki script cannot write the images to directories (i get a error in getpic.pl in line 20). Any clue what can i do?

Thanks

The directories should likely be 777, not 755. Or you forgot to set the permissions on the tmp/ directory.

All directories under /wakaba/ are 777 and all .pl files under /wakaba/ are 755

But, if i set the /wakaba/ directory to 777, the script don't work (error 500). I if set the /wakaba/ directory to 755, the script works but then can't create the html pages and get a "Error: Could not write to directory." when i try to submit the drawing.

For me, it involved modifying Apache's httpd.conf file.

First, I added +ExecCGI to every 'Options' line.
Then, I modified the 'AddHandler' line, to this:

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

I also had better luck installing Kareha to a normal folder, instead of the cgi-bin folder.

So... assuming your host doesn't allow non-perl files to be accessed from within the CGI-Bin, how would you go about running Kareha?

94 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-24 13:33 ID:Heaven [Del]

Preferrably by getting a sane host. Otherwise, by editing the script to make it keep files elsewhere. Look at earlier posts for hints, but I don't think anyone's actually tried.

96 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-15 06:33 ID:Heaven [Del]

you could try putting this in your config.pl:

use constant BOARD_DIR => '../imgboard/'; # set this to whatever directory you want to have the board in (relative to the directory where kareha.pl is).
use constant RES_DIR => BOARD_DIR.'res/';
use constant CSS_DIR => BOARD_DIR.'css/';
use constant IMG_DIR => BOARD_DIR.'src/';
use constant THUMB_DIR => BOARD_DIR.'thumb/';
use constant HTML_SELF => BOARD_DIR.'index.html';
use constant HTML_BACKLOG => BOARD_DIR.'subback.html';
use constant RSS_FILE => BOARD_DIR.'index.rss';
use constant JS_FILE => BOARD_DIR.'kareha.js';
use constant SPAM_FILES => (BOARD_DIR.'spam.txt');

and then putting include/, spam.txt, and all the .pl files in your cgi-bin directory.

note that the directory you put kareha.pl in needs to be writable for it to be able to write the log file.

i haven't tried this, but i'm pretty sure it should work...

Ok, so I set everything up so far and

When I try to go to wakaba.pl or even the test.pl (even in /cgi-bin/)

If my .htaccess has "AddHandler cgi-handler pl cgi"

it will display the .pl file as text in the browser

If I change it to "AddHandler cgi-script pl cgi"

it gives me a 500 Int server error with the logs showing "Premature end of script headers" and nothing else

I've spent hours and I dont know what the hell the problem is. Server is running Perl 5.8.7 and had the Image Magik module natively installed. I'm going crazy here...

Is this "cgi-handler" a module that I don't have???

111 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-05-30 05:11 ID:Heaven [Del]

Do you also have Options +ExecCGI on?

112 Name: shane : 2007-05-30 16:37 ID:D6lpdV2M [Del]

Yes My .htaccess looks like this:

"# -FrontPage-

IndexIgnore .htaccess /.?? ~ *# */HEADER /README /_vti

<Limit GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
</Limit>
<Limit PUT DELETE>
order deny,allow

AuthGroupFile /home/wtfsauce/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp
AddHandler cgi-script pl cgi
Options +ExecCGI
"
That last bit? Yeah, I've tried every combination of cgi-script, cgi-handler, .pl .cgi, pl cgi, pl, .pl, cgi, .cgi, and also having the "Options +ExecCGI" immedietly after the last extension instead of on the next line.

Oh yes, the permissions are 777(Tried 775 too) on the test file. I asked my host? They told me to use /cgi-bin/ which I am and to set the permissions to be able to execute it which I did. Otherwise they just told me to "read the instructions for the script you're trying to run"

if you rum on a linux server you can just install the midnight commander ("apt-get mc" on debian)

you can easily set your wakaba.pl and captcha.pl files to chmod 655, the "res" "thumb" and "src" dir to 777 and of course the entire foöder to 777 if its needet.

I try to run config.pl. Other .pl's dont seem to be working either. I dont have a .htaccess file, do I need one? Aslo, ive looked through httpd.conf and added the exec thing to evert directory. Hosting the server myself so I can do pretty much anything I need to do. CentOS 4.5 if it helps.

146 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-10-04 06:29 ID:Heaven [Del]

You are not supposed to be running config.pl or any other .pl file but wakaba.pl. Also, read the beginning of this thread for more hints.

147 Name: confused : 2007-10-14 02:01 ID:aaVk9lTM [Del]

I got this kind of error:

Compilation failed in require at wakaba.pl line 16.

Even getting this far took lot of effort, because i haven't found any documentation or instructions, does anybody know where i can get those?

Also, that error likely means you messed up the syntax in your config. Start over and look more carefully at the examples.

I guess you'll have to figure out what's different with paint.pl from the other script files. Permissions? Hashbang? Something else?

It's been over ten years, and I am still learning Perl.

156 Name: Anonymous : 2008-02-27 14:19 ID:wlBuPDwX [Del]

Please someone help me. The test script works anywhere in my site just fine, including cgi-bin. I did try permissions (755 for wakaba.pl and captcha.pl as well as all folders - even tried setting 755 for all files). My hash-bin is right. I'm pretty sure I did the config file properly (I did it the same way for wordpress and it works fine with my database so I'm sure that's not a problem). I do have thumbnailers installed. But I still get the 500 Internal Server error.

HOWEVER, the error message/style is different from normal. Before it would be black and white text (given by the server itself) whereas now it's an error given by IE (its graphical) saying "website cannot display the page." My server does not record an error in the error log either this time around. I know these are clues, but I don't understand it.

Can anyone please help?

(Some details about my server: PERL version 5.8.8,
Path to PERL /usr/bin/perl, MySQL version 4.1.22-standard-log, Apache version 1.3.37 (Unix))

I think it might be common sense for a lot of you but for non-programmers, I think this should be stressed: REMOVE THE '#' SYMBOL FROM IN FRONT OF THE LINES YOU CHANGED IN THE CONFIG FILE

159 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-18 16:21 ID:yqDdLeys [Del]

Grr.

So here I am on lighty 1.4.13, Debian.
Perl is functional, directory permissions are correct.

Wakaba can't write to directory(ies?)

On a wild guess, i'm flailing at my inane vhost setup, which is as follows.

$HTTP["host"] =~ "(^|\.)steamchan\.net$" {
server.document-root = "/var/www/steamchan"
$HTTP["url"] == "/c" {

  cgi.assign = ( ".pl" => "/usr/bin/perl" )

}
$HTTP["url"] =~ "/w" {

  cgi.assign = ( ".pl" => "/usr/bin/perl" )

}
$HTTP["url"] =~ "/s" {

  cgi.assign = ( ".pl" => "/usr/bin/perl" )

}
}

Is there something I'm missing?

(a shot in the dark I know, everybody and their mother's dog is on apache.. but.)

160 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-18 17:48 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>159

Just put the cgi.assign in the host pattern, unless you really really need to have .pl files not be executable outside the boards. Less redundant, and less chance of stuff randomly not working because of a silly typo.

If you map a script to "", it'll execute the script directly with the hashbang line. This is the way I do it because it's more like other servers and (IMO) less prone to odd problems.

So your vhost would look like:

$HTTP["host"] =~ "steamchan\.net$" {
server.document-root = "/var/www/steamchan"
cgi.assign = (".pl" => "")
}

Then just chmod +x wakaba.pl and make double sure the cgi scripts have write access to the directories. It "should" work, for varying values of should.

Is it setting the current directory to the board directory before executing the script, or not? Try adding a die pwd; somewhere at the top of the script.

162 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2008-03-18 18:59 ID:xeIogjHJ [Del]

That should be:

Thanks

I managed to figure several things about. For whatever reason, my install of lighty hates serving things from the /var/www/ directory. This is rectified by re-writing everything something like /home/whatever directory.
Secondly, if the permissions are set to anything other than 777 for the board root directory the script will refuse to write them. 775 755 etc do not work. I'll dig around more and see if I can find anything as to why this is the case.

Thanks for your help guys.

165 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2008-03-20 05:31 ID:xeIogjHJ [Del]

>>163

That's likely because the web server runs under its own account, and you need to give others write access. It's more secure to setup Apache to change user to your user before running the scripts, but I don't know if lighty lets you do that, so you may be stuck with 777 (or 757, but that's silly) permissions.

It sure does, with execwrap or Apache's suexec. I've actually found lighty to be easier to configure than Apache for multi-user CGI scripting.

I get the two errors:
Constant subroutine main::DISPLAY_ID redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.0/constant.pm line 115.

syntax error at config.pl line 176, near "1;"

I used to get the "Can't locate config.pl in @INC [...]" error, but that got solved when I set config.pl to chmod 755 (all other .pl's are 755 as well). I don't really like the idea of having the configuration file publicly readable though. Does this mean these scripts has to be run from within cgi-bin/? Otherwise it feels like a pretty huge security risk.

Anyways, Im running latest apache under fedora 9 with latest php (don't know the exact version numbers but they are the latest available builds for fedora 9 x86_64) using mod_cgi.

it looks like you messed up something in config.pl. without seeing what you actually have in that file it's hard to say what.

> I don't really like the idea of having the configuration file publicly readable though.

you could change the owner of the files to whichever user apache runs as, probably www, or even better, set up mod_suexec.

Your host is not set up in a way that supports running Wakaba. Wakaba needs a server that allows both running scripts and serving files from the same directory.

You can also google for instruction on running CGI scripts to find more thorough instructions. Wakaba just needs to be run as a CGI script in a normal directory.

Did the MP3 guy ever fix his problem? MP3 uploading is so sketchy it's just exhausting. I've tried files simply named X.mp3 and got a 500 internal server error while some files with brackets and dashes work fine. Folders are all CHMODed to 777 and the configuration is pristine, which means Wakaba is due for an update. Great script if it would work.

Maybe your server is set to limit upload sizes or something? The script doesn't care what's in your files if they are not images, so it's not going to fail on some and work on others.

I thought of that however some 6mb songs have worked while 4mb files don't, some 3mb files work but 2mb files don't. It is seemingly random.

I looked at the error log and I don't know if it is related or not but it turned up "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/server/public_html/chan/wakaba.pl on line 777" which is:

$sth=$dbh->prepare("DELETE FROM ".SQL_PROXY_TABLE." WHERE type='black' AND timestamp<?;") or make_error(S_SQLFAIL);

according to notepad++. Unless lines that are commented out don't count towards the error line # in which case I guess I'll have to count manually.

So frustrating...

That sounds suspiciously like a PHP error message. What are you trying to do?

208 Name: Anonymous : 2008-12-09 18:48 ID:rrjTmWJb [Del]

I took this bit of code from the KusabaX support board:

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set("display_errors", 1);
include("file_with_errors.php");
?>

and I plugged in wakaba.pl because my server doesn't have any error logs that I can find even though in my PHP info error_log in On in both local and master value. I didn't think of it but it makes sense now that a PHP error reporting script wouldn't work for perl.

So I am back at square one. I can't check the php.ini but the PHP info in my vbulletin admincp says upload_max_filesize is 8M which I guess is related. Whether that means megabits or megabytes I don't know, but like I said I get 500 server errors from files as low as 2 megabytes while there has been one upload of just over 6.

I can't make sense of it

Perl is not PHP, and upload_max_filesize has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with Wakaba. Please, take a minute to learn how CGI scripts work.

You might want to not run xampp. I haven't heard anything but problems with it. I think it uses mod_perl by default? Disable that to start with.

AddHandler cgi-handler .pl
to .htaccess. However, now whenever I try to open up a .pl file on my site I get the dialogue box saying:

I set all files involved to 755, what do I need to do now?

I actually picked Wakaba specifically because it's in Perl.

>>234
That's usually one of two problems, your webserver isn't processing .pl files through the CGI handler or a problem in the Perl code itself. Personally, Lighttpd gave me these when I had a `die' statement where it shouldn't have been.

236 Name: LordPentium!PG1mP76kIY : 2009-01-23 13:46 ID:bH/5bo7l [Del]

>>235
The thing with my server is, it had a previous (and unchangeable) cgi-script handler for .pl files. When I changed .htaccess to add the cgi-handler, it didn't remove the old one, just (supposedly) overrides it.

I use the NXServe free host, if that's any help.

238 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2009-01-23 17:16 ID:Heaven [Del]

Most free hosts are horrible. The best solution is to not use one. It might not be letting you override settings from .htaccess. If that's the case, there's not much you can do about it unless you can edit the httpd.conf, which is unlikely on a free host.

239 Name: LordPentium!PG1mP76kIY : 2009-01-23 19:24 ID:bH/5bo7l [Del]

I asked the people on another site to help me out, but nothing. Yes, I tried opening port 80, both on my router and on my firewall. That was the only problem-specific advice anyone could apparently give (and the same advice sparky gave). But their main advice was to not host myself.

OK, I finally got Kareha up and running. Turns out I just had to set up a CGI wrapper to put it in. Thanks for your help, even though it was a tip on the host's support forum that gave me what I needed.

I get an error 500 when trying to access my index.html. I found the following information in my webhost's documentation:

Q: Why can't I read files in my cgi-bin dir through the web?

A: Your cgi-bin will not send any page to web browser because it assumes that all files in cgi-bin are either script or private datafiles. In each case it assumes that you would not want a nosey user to inadvertently get the webserver to send them the contents of files in cgi-bin.

Because of this it is not possible to serve .html files from your cgi-bin dir.

Is there any fix or workaround for this? Thanks!

  1. read this thread. you should have done this before posting in it, but obviously you didn't. the same question has been asked about a million times.
  2. don't put wakaba or kareha in your cgi-bin dir.

245 Name: Anonymous : 2009-03-02 18:19 ID:l25Y4nUr [Del]

Posting this because I checked my hashbang, made sure +ExecCGI was added as an option, and .pl is an addedhandler, and the .htaccess file should be fine as well. That being said, I get the following from apache, even if the scripts are in /cgi-bin:

[Mon Mar 02 20:45:12 2009] [error] Can't locate config.pl in @INC (@INC contains: . C:/xampp/perl/site/lib/ C:/xampp/perl/lib C:/xampp/perl/site/lib C:/xampp/apache) at C:/xampp/htdocs/kareha/kareha.pl line 8.\nBEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/xampp/htdocs/kareha/kareha.pl line 8.\n

Line 8 is:
BEGIN { require 'config.pl'; }

Working with a fresh install of xampp w/ perl addon, activestate's perl exec is in the directory that the scripts are looking for but even if I use the one from xampp I get the same results. Oddly, I get the same results even if I delete the hashbang line.

246 Name: 245 : 2009-03-02 18:48 ID:l25Y4nUr [Del]

Nevermind.
Apparently (for anyone else in the future) mod_perl may be installed extraneously by xampp. Kill apache and run setup_xampp.bat, and tell it to reconfigure without mod_perl. Then start apache again.

Whatever you are doing, it is completely wrong. I really can't recommend using xampp at all, it seems half the problems in this thread are caused by it. You really should use a plain Apache and plain Perl. You especially should not use mod_perl, which xampp seems to be fond of installing.

When I try to run the test script, it comes up with the code in my browser. Im positive I've done everything right though. I've done all the things in httpd.conf that I read to do, and ive pointed my .pl scripts hashbangs to "c:/perl/bin/perl.exe"

I also dont have a .htaccess file running. Is this the cause, or should I try reinstalling perl or something?

Don't install in cgi-bin, configure your web server properly to run CGI scripts elsewhere.

Kareha always gives me an "Internal Server Error" on my webspace. When I locally opened kareha.pl in Notepad, I noticed that there are no line breaks shown (which is quite shitty on the part of the coder). I hit return after the first line "#!/usr/bin/perl", saved and uploaded it again, but Kareha still won't work.

Kareha is in its own folder called "kareha" and I want it to run in message mode. The server of the webhoster is running on a *nix machine I guess.

What else do I need to adjust?

As a favor to a friend, I'm attempting to install Wakaba on one of my servers so he can have an imageboard to play with. But alas, i seem to be having the dreaded 500's as well. I've seen several references on using CGI instead of mod_perl to run the perl scripts (that part just seems odd to me) But I've yet to find a valid solution for doing so.

The server in question uses Plesk Panel 9.2.x and has the following applicable packages installed:

CentOS 5.4 (Final)
------------------
mysql-5.0.77-3.el5
perl-5.8.8-27.el5
ImageMagick-6.2.8.0-4.el5_1.1
httpd-2.2.3-31.el5.centos.2 (apache 2 equivalent)
|_[Sub-Packages]- CGI, Fast-CGI, mod_perl, mod_rewrite etc..

I have set all *.pl files with the permissions: 755, and all directories with the permissions 777.

As noted by someone else, Plesk uses a cgi-bin that is outside of the root directory for the website.
example:
site URL: www.mysite.com
site directory: /var/www/vhost/www.mysite.com/httpdocs/
site CGI-BIN: /var/www/vhost/www.mysite.com/CGI-BIN/

My questions are as follows:

1) is it possible to run this imageboard given the hosting panels paranoia?

2) If possible, what spacificly needs to be changed in which files to allow the site to function properly.

3) How would one go about using CGI instead of Perl for perl scripts in this environment.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Your webserver needs to chdir to C:/xampp/htdocs/wakaba/, or you need to add it to the PERL5INC. I guess.

mod_perl is not "Perl". CGI uses plain Perl to run the scripts. Also, this isn't a Plesk or Apache support board, you'd probably be better off looking elsewhere for information about how to configure it to use CGI.

Seems a whole lot of problems are reported by people using XAMPP. It doesn't seem to be a very good choice.

i agree mod_perl is not perl, i also have perl installed(it is mentioned), the problem isnt' a plesk related problem, it's the script that is having the issue, normal perl/cgi scripts run just fine. the information was given to help further narrow down a solution to the problematic script. I guess i'll just go with another solution that actually works under normal web-server environment conditions.

changing the entire structure of a webserver to suit the misguided needs of a poorly coded script is rediculous. Perhaps rather than flaming at the people asking for support, you should look into actually coding your script to work in more typical server / hosting environments.

I am using Google Chrome and trying to get Wakaba working on my website. I have followed all the instructions, but when I navigate to the wakaba directory and click on "wakaba.pl" all that happens is that my browser downloads the file in notepad form. It doesn't run the script. What do I do?

At first, Wakaba was giving me an SQL error, but I solved that (took me a while to figure out that I did), but now it's giving me a 500 error. Apache2 works just fine, all my other CGI scripts and HTML pages work juuust fine. Permissions are at 755, all the hashbangs are intact, so all that leaves are the .htaccess junk (I don't have .htaccess) and mod_suexec.

I have no idea where the install put the mod_suexec stuff.

315 Name: Ryo : 2010-06-22 23:08 ID:NRkVg090 [Del]

I'm trying to run wakaba from my win7 system. I've got Apache Perl PHP and MySQL and they seem to be getting along with each other but I'm running into the Error 500 problem which is almost certainly because of my permissions but I made an observation which confuses me.

Why are there html files in the cgi-bin folder and why does wakaba link directly to them instead of placing or redirecting or including that content from HTML files in the htdocs folder?

I know that its some sort of permissions problem but more like an apache setting that I either can't change or I really don't want to for security reasons. Everything in the cgi-bin folder is treated like a server script and not sent to the client but since wakaba puts them in the cgi folder it manifests as a permission problem.

I did find a variable in the internal paths section of the config.pl file that looked promising but I have found that changing the values prevents it from giving me a 500 error but it won't update the html files.[variable called HTML_SELF]

I know I'm doing something wrong but hopefully someone can point me in the rite direction...

Excuse me but, yes, there is. Dir folder what ever you want to call it, its there. It's part of the default instillation of Apache. You just have to activate it to use any cgi like perl

I'd like to apologize for sounding snippy with >>316. I think i understand what you mean but you could have gone into a bit more detail. there should be no cgi-bin folder because the scripts shouldn't be executed from that directory on the server. since the cgi generates HTML local to the scripts in sub directories if the files are in the cgi-bin folder any referenced files are assumed to be server script and not sent to the client.

that said the cgi has to be in the htdocs folder and the question then becomes how do i set up apache to execute the cgi from there without getting 403(forbidden)/500(permission) errors?

319 Name: Anonymous : 2010-06-24 00:36 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>318
Right. You don't put Wakaba into the cgi-bin folder, at all. Incidentally that folder is a terrible idea in general.

The example.htaccess supplied with Wakaba is all the configuration you need, presuming Apache is configured to allow .htaccess files. (Rename it to .htaccess)

After hours of fighting i have finally hit the wall, perl is supposedly working as test.pl outputs coherently, mysql is propably up and running correctly as even the tables have been created, folders and .pl files are correctly 755 and others 644, apache has ownership of the folders, and the wakaba.pl does not generate any 403 or 500 errors anymore. Only one small thing, when I go to the wakaba.pl and it generates .html and redirects me there, the .html gives me 500 error with apache error log saying [error] [client *] (13)Permission denied: exec of '/var/www/imgboard/wakaba.html' failed

No-one ever posted a solution for this:
A directory of 777 recieves an error as the built in security prevents the script from running.
A directory of 755 prevents a file being written and so no posts can be made.

No. You can spawn FastCGI servers which run with different UIDs to achieve the same security benefits, though.

Yes, it's a bitch and is (in my opinion) unnecessarily strict on how you set things up. mpm_itk does pretty much the same thing, but is easier to set up, lets you use crap like mod_php (so you won't have to dick around with getting PHP to run under FastCGI on Apache) and doesn't whine because you use mode 775 instead of 777 on your CGI scripts.

...Well, they obviously do if you were able to make threads in the first place... Maybe its a permissions error?

I set them all at 755. Perhaps it is because I am using Kareha hahaha, I wanted to use Wakaba but, it seems a lot more confusing to set up.

It might need to be 775 depending on what fastcgi is running as. Don't blame yourself; its your host's fault.

Fuuu- now I'm getting this:

Software error:

For help, please send mail to this site's webmaster, giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

But, anyway, I am going to restart.. Just wipe my /public_html/

Could it be that the webserver is configured to block large uploads?

>>367
I don't think text replies can be considered large... Try changing the group of the files to whatever fastcgi is running as. I'm assuming the problem is still permissions related.

Want to fix all of your issues, have a super fast site, and never have problems again? I run the LURKMORE Wiki, CHANSLUTS, intern3ts, Male General, TranCHAN, TEXTCHAN, and another 10 sites with this:

  1. Get a 128MB RAM Xen VPS with Debian 6 x86, it'll cost you something like $15-$25 per year.
  2. Install Apache, PHP, MySQL (if you need it) and ImageMagick.
  3. Set up your VirtualHost with your web root as something like /home/user/site.com
  4. Extract the software to your web root, or a sub folder
  5. Set permissions on the following files with the group being your PHP user (since we didn't use suexec): wakaba.pl/kareha.pl as 754, the folders where the software writes to is 755. You will need to set admin.pl and captcha.pl to 754 as well (if you use them).
  6. Configure passwords, secret, database, title, everything else.
  7. Enjoy your new software.

If you need more help, want to make a donation for fixing your issues, want suggestions on where you get your VPS (I have a very long list of where not to get them, especially), want me to set everything up for you (for a very small fee), want more information or advanced information (suexec, multiuser environment), or anything else, you can contact me at [email protected]

Feel free to visit all of my sites and imageboards every day (easy portals: http://www.scriptin.us or http://www.greedbox.com/top/), as well - preferably with ad blocking disabled.

Oh really? Assuming you're >>372, you don't mention the explicit need to enable CGI in Apache, and there is no such thing as a "PHP user" in Debian. Why are you even mentioning PHP in the first place, when it has nothing to do with Wakaba?

Furthermore, Debian's default Apache configuration is a turd and will guarantee shit-poor performance unless you tweak the MPM, especially on a VPS with 128 MB RAM. Coupled with the fact that Debian's MySQL configuration is a memory hog by default, and you have a hosting setup which is worse than free hosting and which will crash your server during heavy load.

>>375 s/PHP user/Apache user

MySQL runs perfectly well by default, not sure where you're getting that it doesn't.

Nobody said that we were using the default Apache config, you just assumed that we were.

I also didn't mention how to actually set up a VirtualHost, which would include enabling CGI to run. Did you want me to hold your hand while you pee, as well?

The above are the steps to get it running, if anyone wants more info, they can search online or contact me. You're just as bad as the retards who try to run Wakaba on free webhosts that are lacking the necessary functions.

>MySQL runs perfectly well by default, not sure where you're getting that it doesn't.

MySQL uses 40 MB RAM on my 2 GB RAM dedi with a default Debian configuration. That would be ~30% RAM on a system with 128 MB RAM. I'm not able to pinpoint how much RAM my heavily tweaked Apache uses, so I'll just point to Google where there's lots of whining about Debian and Apache's memory usage: http://www.google.com/search?q=debian+apache+memory. On a busy site, this will translate to lots of swapping, which is especially bad on VPSes because of their reduced I/O capabilities. Google "xen i/o performance" for more information on that.

>Nobody said that we were using the default Apache config, you just assumed that we were.

I am not criticising your setup, which I know nothing about. I am criticising your half-assed attempt at creating some sort of magic formula that will somehow automatically "fix all issues". Mind you, you're probably only posting it so you have an excuse to beg for donations on this board.

>I also didn't mention how to actually set up a VirtualHost, which would include enabling CGI to run. Did you want me to hold your hand while you pee, as well?

But you do go into details such as mentioning what packages to install and what permissions to set. Installing software and choosing file permissions requires much more basic knowledge than setting up virtual hosts in Apache. If you assume that the reader already knows how to set up virtual hosting with CGI, then why don't you assume that he doesn't know what software to install or what file permissions to set?

>The above are the steps to get it running.

No, they aren't. See above.

>You're just as bad as the retards who try to run Wakaba on free webhosts that are lacking the necessary functions.

That's the second time you insult me. Are you unable to debate without resorting to ad hominem attacks?

378 Name: Anonymous : 2012-05-14 12:42 ID:Heaven [Del]

>MySQL uses 40 MB RAM

It can use 20-40MB RAM, yes. Reading the MySQL documentation will lead you to basic information such as turning off InnoDB and setting sort_buffer_size to 1M, bringing MySQL server down to ~11MB.

>heavily tweaked Apache

lol

>excuse to beg for donations on this board.

You say that as if I expected anyone here to have money.

>But you do go into details such as mentioning what packages to install

No, I didn't.

I stated some information that is already stated on this site many times. It's a necessary step that people tend to ignore. The rest of it is for people to fill in themselves, using their brains. If they don't care enough to search for the answers to what I left out, they don't care enough to moderate their imageboard after it's running.

>Are you unable to debate without resorting to ad hominem attacks?

Are you too mentally challenged to be able to ignore it?

I'm well aware of that, but that's not my point. I'm pointing out that your guide is lacking essential information and you shouldn't have posted it in the first place because it's so incomplete and will lead to nothing but trouble for the naïve people who might follow it. At least mention that CGI has to be enabled (see the next point) and that the server has to be tweaked to run on low amounts of RAM.

>I stated some information that is already stated on this site many times. It's a necessary step that people tend to ignore.

... and enabling CGI is probably the most ignored step, yet the most important one. There are countless posts here from people having problems with wakaba.pl "being downloaded".

>If they don't care enough to search for the answers to what I left out, they don't care enough to moderate their imageboard after it's running.

The same could be applied to everything in your guide.

>Are you too mentally challenged to be able to ignore it?

I tend to hear this when I point out that someone's argumentation is flawed. Anyway, the answer is "no".

You either:

  • edited config_defaults.pl -- You shouldn't ever do that unless you really know what you're doing.
    or
  • created a syntax error when you put in your admin password, probably by putting in an unescaped quotation mark -- Fix it.

I'm trying to install Kareha on Nearlyfreespeech, but get:
An error has occurred while handling your request. The most common reasons for this are:

A malfunctioning script or CGI application.
An invalid or inaccessible .htaccess file.
Please contact the site administrator for assistance.

If you are the site administrator:

Enable and check your site's error log for more information.
Check to make sure CGI scripts are set properly executable.
Make sure CGI scripts are uploaded in Unix text file format (newline-only).

Any ideas?

Turns out I'd disabled the error log and forgotten about it. With the error log on, it tells me:

I tried opening kareha.pl in vi and changing the format to Unix, as I had been editing it to fix another problem (turning off strict subs) in an odd little iOS app, but no such luck.

for some reason, no perl scripts are working for me.

tried a simple test script as well, using the hashbang my host says to use, although I've tried many different hashbangs, and I've tried all the scripts at permissions 755 and 777

#!/usr/bin/perlml

print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><body><h1>Perl is working!</h1></body></html>";

When I attempt to access the .pl, any of them, my browsers want to download the file and thats it. I am assuming that somehow I am flubbing up the executable, but I haven't found any info yet.

are you hosting this yourself? if yes, i have no idea what's wrong (except maybe the perl dir being incorrect).
else: check that you are allowed to perl (check the host's website (maybe you'll find something in the FAQ or packet options), maybe send the support an email); check perl dir is correct

Alright, so I've just chmodded my Kareha directory to 777, all the subdirectories to 777, and my scripts to 755. When I run kareha.pl, It generates index.html, index.rss, and subback.html, but it spits out a 500 error afterwords.

In my Apache log, there were these two lines that generated any time I made a request for index.html or kareha.pl:

[Wed Jan 27 12:48:26.628422 2016] [cgid:error] [pid 16453] (13)Permission denied: AH01241: exec of '/var/cgi-bin/kareha/index.html' failed
[Wed Jan 27 12:48:26.631729 2016] [cgid:error] [pid 1029] [client 192.168.1.243:57408] End of script output before headers: index.html

Now, as you may notice, I'm running cgi-bin out of /var/cgi-bin/ instead of /var/www/html/cgi-bin/. Could this have something to do with my problem? Basic hello world scripts work fine.

This is driving me crazy. What's even the problem here?

408 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-27 17:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

cgi-bin directories are usually set to try and execute every file. This is not compatible with how kareha works, it needs to be run from a directory where only .pl files are set to use cgi-handler.

You'll have to enable cgi-handler for pl files, but other than that, yes.
