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).

[stevieb]: did my pull request challenge today, Locale::gettext. Weird layout for a dist, and I have no idea how to use it, but it's always nice when you can force someone else's work be use strict; and use warnings; compliant :)
[stevieb]: ahem... s/no idea how to use it/didn't read enough as to what it's used for/
[stevieb]: interestingly enough, someone else got my Devel::Examine:: Subs distribution for their PRC, and I applaud the change. This dist is extremely complicated and mostly obfu, but the person doing it understood PPI enough to change...
[stevieb]: ...something I had overlooked in the extreme depths of the core functionality. After merging, then a couple of extra tweaks, I still have 100% test coverage. Yay for people who write tests!
