As mentioned by ptum
the problem is likely due to file perm. I did this on my machine (Apache 2.0/Mod_perl) -
use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/;
open (OUT, ">/no/perm/path/junkfile") or die $!;
print OUT ("hi there\n");
I get this -
Permission denied at /var/www/html/perl/create.cgi line 7.
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (root@localhost), giving t
+his error message and the time and date of the error.
However when i changed the path to /tmp/junkfile (world-writeable for me) it works just fine. I guess if you turn on the fatalsToBrowser (turn it off for production) you will get more info. Also take a look at your apache logs!
