( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
As mentioned by ptum the problem is likely due to file perm. I did this on my machine (Apache 2.0/Mod_perl) -

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; use CGI; use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/; open (OUT, ">/no/perm/path/junkfile") or die $!; print OUT ("hi there\n"); close(OUT);

I get this -

Software error: 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!

cheers
