in reply to Set HTTP Status code

You don't mention which web server, but if you're using a RFC compliant server, certain status codes are only valid with specific headers. I used to be able to return any status code I wanted, now I have to have the correct HTML headers in order to return the appropriate status code.

Just a thought!

Good Luck

    We are using Apache 2.2 web server

    I am able to execute the program - it is just that if I execute $self->header_props(-status => 404);, then the server doesn't output the results of the program, instead, it outputs the error message as posted.

    So I'm guessing it may have something to do with mod_perl - since I don't have that set up on my local environment, and it works.
