Begginer apache issues

Postby awa5114 » 19. September 2018 11:50

I am trying to get a simple web service running on my local computer. In my `cgi-bin` directory in the `Apache24` folder I added an empty file called `pywps.cgi` with the following content

import sys
sys.path.insert(0, r"C:/pywps")
import os
# Note that WPS runs as apache user and not as you, so many more user variables might be needed.
# Restart Apache after adding one.
import pywps
The main `index.html` file works fine, but when i try to open `http://localhost/cgi-bin/pywps.cgi` I get an error:

> Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or
> misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
> Please contact the server administrator at to inform
> them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed
> just before this error.
> More information about this error may be available in the server error
> log

I checked the error log and I've got this going on:

[Wed Sep 19 10:36:25.173859 2018] [core:notice] [pid 11404:tid 476] AH00094: Command line: 'C:\\Apache24\\bin\\httpd.exe -d C:/Apache24'

[Wed Sep 19 10:37:03.781859 2018] [cgi:error] [pid 8080:tid 976] [client ::1:54670] End of script output before headers: pywps.cgi

I have been looking all over for the `end of script output before headers` but I'm not sure what could be causing it. I checked and rechecked my `DocumentRoot` path and also the paths in the `cgi` file to no avail. Could anyone help please?


I tried adding the following after setting the interpreter path:

print("Content-type: text/html\n\n")

Which seems to run the script with no issues but does not output the desired `xml`. Modifying the above `html` with `xml` throws an error:

> This page contains the following errors: error on line 2 at column 1:
> Extra content at the end of the document Below is a rendering of the
> page up to the first error.

Where line 2 contains the additional `print` statement shown above.
