Q&A > debugging > How to get over 'premature end of script headers' in Apache? - Answer contributed by davorg

This message says "your script broke and it didn't send any HTTP headers before sending the error messages". Some suggestions for further investigation:

  • Check the error message that was written in your apache error log.
  • Switch off output buffering (set $| to a true value) to ensure that headers get out before your errors.
  • Put use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser) to make debugging easier (but remove it before putting the script live).

[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
[Discipulus]: it's me? ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena could it be a quoting issue? I just tried find with -exec on the command line. find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \;
[Tanktalus]: No, I know who he is, nice try. But if you're hiring, let me know :)
[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
