Any Perl experts?

Is anyone here good with Perl or CGI? I am using the Amazon.com affiliate
script from http://www.grohol.com/downloads/ and it has been running
perfectly on the site. However, I recently moved to another server and
now, all searches produce the following response:

“We were unable to find exact matches for your search” which is the
generic error when the script can not connect to Amazon.com . Any ideas
why this happens?

I suspect it might have something to do with perl modules, but all of the
modules seem to be installed. Here is the list of modules used by the
script: use LWP::UserAgent; use URI::Escape; use HTTP::Request; use
HTTP::Response; use Fcntl;

Any suggestions?

My guess is either (1) Amazon has blocked all requests coming from
non-Amazon sites like yours or (2) your server is behind a firewall that
does not allow outgoing http requests.

It’s not the first option since the script works at
http://psychcentral.com/cgi-bin/amzing.cgi and I asked my server company
and they say that there is no firewall blocking the server.

There’s a possibility that your server does not have all the required Perl
modules installed.

did you ask your server company if all the modules are installed?

Got it figured out, one of the modules need to be updgraded.
