If you want to execute the Perl script on your document root as "home/user/public_html" then you should follow these Steps.
#!/usr/bin/perl print "Content-Type: text/plain\n\n"; print "Hello, World!\n";
Note: In order for your Perl script file to function properly and serve on your domain, you must include the code `print "Content-Type: text/plain";` in it.
$ sudo chmod 0755 /home/user/public_html/index.cgi $ sudo chown user:user /home/user/public_html/index.cgi
$ sudo chown user:user -R /home/user/public_html/project $ sudo chmod 0755 -R /home/user/public_html/project
