( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Adding use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); during debug can help (especially if hippo's suggestion of searching ISP error logs isn't convenient).

And, in the BEGIN block, you might want to log some of the CGI header variables from %ENV, like $ENV{SERVER_ADDR}, possibly to your own logfile or to STDERR, or move your $cgi->header print so that it's in the BEGIN before the unshift -- it might indicate that your ISP has a round-robin of servers where one or more servers aren't behaving identically to the others, or some such. By putting it as early as possible (in BEGIN blocks, before local libraries are used), you increase the chances that your debug code will be printed somewhere you can read it before the script crashes.

An example here:

http://www.cgi101.com/book/ch3/text.html lists other interesting environment variables, and a way to dump all of the %ENV... SERVER_ADDR isn't in their list, but it's available on my shared hosting system.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
