in reply to Perl from PHP

This should work fine. Can you try putting the absolute URL in the "action" of the form, just for testing if this works?

Testing never proves the absence of faults, it only shows their presence.

    I did (I used /public_html/cgi-bin/process.pl) and the full host path, both of those searched for pages that didn't exist. When using the one posted, it just goes to a blank white page (which is strange it seems the script would show up there) and the script doesn't run. I have also tried running the script as ".cgi" with no change in results either.

      You may be missing this in your Perl cgi script:

      print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

      In Perl you absolutely need this as your first output string to print a HTML page.
