koolgirl,
Rather than assume the problem is with PHP posting to a Perl CGI, first verify that you can run a Perl CGI directly. There could be a number of problems - the script doesn't have the correct ownership, permissions, isn't printing out headers, etc. If it were one of those issues - I would expect an error message rather than a white screen. More likely, something isn't working the way you expect and you are looking in the wrong broom closet.

Write the simplest hello world CGI you can. Verify it works directly. Replace the POST action to the hello world. Verify it works.

Cheers - L~R

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
