502 error with cgi version on IIS7
I'm trying to run the cgi version of Zoom on IIS7 (Windows Server 200. I read this http://www.wrensoft.com/zoom/support/faq_cgi_iis.html carefully and followed the steps twice. It caused a 500 internal server error.
I asked my hosting company for assistance, and I think they went in and removed the CGI module mapper (there was another one in place already, I think for Perl), which now results in a 502 error - Web server received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server. They also gave me a little more information from the error logs:
HTTP Error 502.2 - Bad Gateway
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are "Unrecognized character \x7F; marked by <-- HERE after <-- HERE near column 1 at [removed filename] line 1. ". Detailed Error Information
Handler CGI handler
Error Code 0x000000ff
Requested URL [removed URL]
Physical Path [removed path]
Logon Method Anonymous
Logon User Anonymous
Most likely causes:
•The CGI process was shut down or terminated unexpectedly before it finished processing the request.
•The CGI process has a flaw and does not return a complete set of HTTP headers.
They think it is a header issue. I did play around with the timeout numbers, and that had no effect.
Have you encountered this before? Do you know how I can fix this? I'm still pretty new to IIS7 and Windows servers in general. The same script runs fine in Apache.
Thanks in advance.
