The e-commerce.

CGI Error

Recommended Posts



I've just installed os commerce for the first time and have hit a bit of a brick wall. If I click on the 'My Account' or 'Checkout' link I get the following error page:-



CGI Error

The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:




Nothing is listed below it. I've had a good search on this forum and have found quite a few topics with this error message but unfortunatly none with the solution for my instalaltion. Can anyone help me? I've installed os commerce in the htdocs directory on a Linux server (Fasthosts are the ISP) on a shared server with with shared SSL space.


Many thanks in advance




If the administrator of this forum happens to read this, the not being able to use words less than 4 characters in a search string is a real pain - it means you can't copy in specific error messages to search on, like the one above which has 'by' in it.

Fasthosts are the ISP


Do a search of these forums on Fasthosts - then move to a different host. That's nine letters so you shouldn't have any problem getting results - from the search that is, dont expect any from fasthosts.


You are correct about the Search function - it is not exactly the best.


Regarding the error - you should not be getting it as osCommerce (normally) has nothing to do with cgi.
