#1: Http Response code

Posted on 2007-08-24 01:21:26 by mohitanchlia

Is there any way we can successfully tell web server to use the error
code that we set in response object. I am doing this below when cgi is
called, expecting web server to send 503 as response code instead of
200:

#!/usr/bin/perl
require HTTP::Response;
require LWP::UserAgent;

$response = HTTP::Response->new(503) ;
$response->header('Content-Type' => 'text/plain');
$response->header('Content-length' => '5');
$response->content("Error");
print $response->as_string;

But, webserver doesn't like it. It's writing invalid cgi header errors
to the logs. How do I change the response codes ?

HTTP::Response (and LWP::UserAgent) are for client-side programs
pretending to be browsers. For CGI, you want to use the CGI module and
return an appropriate header, e.g.

use CGI;
print header('text/html','503 Service unavailable');


See 'perldoc CGI' and search for 'STANDARD HTTP HEADER'.

I read little bit about it and saw there is something called as -
status. So what's the difference between:

print header('text/html','204 No response');

and

print header(-status=>cgi_error);

Both seem to be returning error codes

Yes. In the first case you determine the response. In the second case,
the CGI module is determining the response.

You can also do:

print header(-status=>'204 No response');
