I inherited a set of Perl scripts that collects student information and saves it to a flat text file. I needed to move the scripts to a new host, but still on Linux. The scripts work in non-SSL calls (http) and most of the work in SSL too (e.g., https). The part that does not work, but only in SSL, is appending a text variable to an open file. My question. Does Linux/Appache SSL have different rules for appending to a file when SSL is on versus when it is off?
