- How to get more detailed errors from IIS
- Error message when you visit a Web site that is hosted on IIS 7.0: “HTTP Error 403.19 – Forbidden”
- HOW TO: Configure and Test a PERL Script with IIS 4.0, 5.0, 5.1, and 6.0
When trying to run a Perl script on your Windows hosting running IIS7 on Windows 2008, you might see this error message:
HTTP Error 403.19 – Forbidden
The configured user for this application pool does not have sufficient privileges to run CGI applications.
Here is a screen capture of it:
If all you see is a “403 – Forbidden: Access is denied.”, then you probably don’t have Detailed Errors enabled. See related document .
The fix? Get an Arvixe staff member to set the value of the Impersonate User property in the CGI settings to false. See Method 2 in related document .
