Hello biospeculator,

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having issues with your script. As I cannot determine your account without the domain name I will have to take a guess at the issue.

The most common cause if the 500 error when working with Perl is incorrect permissions. Please take a quick look at the article below and ensure your permissions are set correctly.

How do I change my file permissions

If that does not work, we are happy to take a further look. Please reply with the primary domain name on the account and we can do so.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
