More generic advice :) On debugging, verify everything, talk to teddybear ... checklists and more

Because https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/public_html.html#cgi / Apache Tutorial: Dynamic Content with CGI and more

Also, there are checklists for that , Basic debugging checklist , brian's Guide to Solving Any Perl Problem, CGI Help Guide , Troubleshooting Perl CGI scripts

Yes, work through these checklists, when you find a problem on the list, use a solution from the list, when you find a problem not on the list (rare), post the error message and problem description here
