    9.2: My CGI script runs from the command line but not the browser. (500 Server Error)

    There are many things that might be wrong with your CGI program, and
    only some of them might be related to Perl. Try going through the
    troubleshooting guide on Perlmonks:

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
    perlfaq.pod.
