Posted by venkeykanle on 2018-10-07 07:45


I have installed 5.26.1x64 ver on Windows 2012R2 IIS 8.5
Configured IIS as required (like Handler mapping, etc.,).
The application is in Classic ASP and the global.asa start with

With this my simple .asp page throws error "HTTP 500 internal error". The iis log says".. |-|ASP_0147|500_Server_Error 80..."
And, if i remove runtat="server" it works in .asa file, that works (but i cannt remove that).

Am i missing any configuration here...

Could someone please help...

However, you should be replacing this legacy site rather than upgrading it again.

PerlSE was intended for IIS 5 and Perl 5.6. The community suggests alternate tech is more appropriate, and there will soon be no current ActivePerls that include PerlSE.
