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:

HTTP Error 403.19 - Forbidden

HTTP Error 403.19 - Forbidden

If all you see is a “403 – Forbidden: Access is denied.”, then you probably don’t have Detailed Errors enabled. See related document [1].

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 [2].
