Have you tried getting the script to write the file to disk


can this file be retrieved by the clients correctly?

Yes, I've written that file to the /tmp-Dir, copied it to the HTTPD-root-directory accessed it directly and could download it just fine.

have you tried having the script simultaniously write a copy of the file and return it to the client?

No, I am using the following code:

my $tar = Archive::Tar->new; # ... # in a loop: $tar->add_files("$filename"); # ... my $data = $tar->write(); print $q->header(-type => 'application/octet-stream', -attachment => "edi.tar"); print $data;
And remember: it works fine on two out of three machines. That is what makes me wonder so much.

    How different are the httpd.conf files for the two redhat machines? Are there any extra later steps the data stream goes though? Eg one running Apache::Compress on the output stream.

    Hope it helps

      The only differences are related to the user-directory: I enabled it on one machine, set the name to "public_html" and arranged a CGI directory for the users. But the problem does not seem to be related to that because it doesn't make any difference whether running it in /var/www/cgi-bin or in $HOME/public_html/cgi-bin.
