I spent some time with Apache guys and they said the way the script is being
executed doesn't tell us everything and that I should simply run it without
setting up environments, etc. When I do, I get the same result (500 internal

I tried setting up ScriptLog to see what is going on, but since it's a
binary, it doesn't produce any logs out of it. I ran 'ldd' on 'listinfo' and
'admin', etc. to see if I'm missing any libraries, which I am not.

I'm just stuck here.
