I've got a fundamental Apache 2.2.9 setup under fedora core 8. I must set my very own HTTP headers to be released (HTTP Forbidden / 403).

Basically title the file nph-foo.pl, it really works. Basically title the file foo.pl, it fails and that i obtain a server error, type 500.

Based on all web references I have found, the nph-filename convention was no more necessary good at Apache 1.3 forward.

It is possible to header / apache configuration directive I want to make this happen?

Are you certain that you'll require a no-parsed-header script with this? Perhaps you have attempted printing a "Status" CGI header?

print "Status: 403\n\n";
