Error: 500 Internal Server Error

This error message may be produced from a webserver that has failed to spawn a CGI process.


The 500 Internal Server Error will occur if the hypertext transfer protocol daemon, thttpd is configured to run in a chroot environment, but the relevant *!/bin * directory is not available from within the chroot environment.

It may be necessary to reconfigure the server to remove the chroot restrictions, or provide stand alone CGI executables, that do not require *!/bin * or *!/lib * directories within the chroot environment.
