> I recently moved a web site from an old Windows NT machine

> We had to change our scripts when we moved them because they

> contactp.pl
> It's located at: /var/www/cgi-bin
> [root at server cgi-bin]# pwd
> /var/www/cgi-bin
> [root at server cgi-bin]# ls -l:
> -rwxrwxrwx  1 apache root 1047 Oct 20 15:32 contactp.pl
> When the script is called I get a 500 Internal Server Error. 
> The error log gives me the following two errors:
> [Thu Oct 20 15:43:35 2005] [error] (2)No such file or

> [Thu Oct 20 15:43:35 2005] [error] Premature end of script headers:

Trying running dos2unix <filename>.  You'll have to fix your permissions
