am stuck getting Greenstone
to work properly on my IIS 6 server. I have sent several emails on this
the list and individual team members where appropriate. It seems that I
response with a possible clue and a request to follow up (which I have
but then no response back.
is pretty clear to me that
something is wrong with the way the gliserver.pl script outputs headers
IIS. If you look through the thread I have included below you will see
have tested other code which runs successfully and the Greenstone
as well. I do not have good enough knowledge of the scripting language
this. I was hoping to hear back from David, but I have not as yet.
I have stated below, I am
happy to allow the development team access to our server to test any

experiencing this issue.
I have been contacted privately by another institution seeking a fix.

Thanks for your response.
Your suggestion didn't work. But it did give
insight into the issue and inspired me to test this in a different way.
a "Hello World" type script online and I successfully executed it on
the server. So the set up of the web server is ok. Here is the script
print "Content-type: text/html
<title>A Simple Perl CGI</title>
<h1>A Simple Perl CGI</h1>
You can execute that at http://126.96.36.199/gsdl/cgi-bin/helloworld.pl
Attempting to execute http://188.8.131.52/gsdl/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl?cmd=check-installation
You may have full access to my web server to
diagnose this issue and provide a solution to the community. I just got
email from another user in my position who is also seeking a fix. Mine
an isolated incident. Contact me off list and I will be happy to
with credentials that will allow access.

I dont have an IIS installation so I cant try
Could you please have a look at the
in the cgi-bin directory?
There is a line at the end of the
method where it outputs the content type. Just before this, try
print STDOUT "Status: 200 OK
then restart the webserver and see how that
works. Let me
know what happens either way.
