There seems to be a bug with the UBB under NT. I don't believe Unix users of
the UBB are faced with the same problem. Ofcourse it could be the version of
ActivePerl is wonderfully verbose with it's error reporting, which is
causing the problem in this case. If you use the standard perl
distribution for WindowsNT, you'll only get the simple "Error 500" message
with the details stored in the local "ScriptLog" file if defined in the
httpd.conf (I am presuming Apache here).
The best workaround would be to deny all web access to your
/cgi-bin/Members directory. Since UBB reads these files from the local
filesystem, the board will operate just fine.
All that being said, I'd have to agree that using a ".cgi" extension to
store data is rather silly.
