[Solved] Error 500: internal server error, for cgi-script.
Edit: Nevermind, used another code.

I have /cgi-bin/emailformreturn.cgi a 500 error. I don't know why.

The chmod is set to 755.

I made input forms, in a .html page in /htdocs/, click submit, and it goes to that page, and 500 error.

Premature end of script headers: emailformreturn.cgi, referer: http://nealirc.org/emailform.html

What's suexec.log?

RE: Error 500: internal server error, for cgi-script.
ok, premature end... may have several reasons.

are the rights (owner and permissions) ok?
are the files uploaded with ascii mode (or in binary mode) - better use ascii (text) because of line end: CRLF, LF, CR... Linux only uses (Windows has CRLF and Mac uses only CR).

The chmod is 755, which is what it's supposed to be.

Hm, how do I check? And if it's binary, how do I convert?

There is no CR or LF in the .cgi file. I did a Ctrl F and scanned.

run dos2unix (apt-get install tofrodos) on the file, check owner(!) and group(!), check if is executable, check if the shebang is correct... (#!/bin...)
