wfs server with postgis data

Hello, everyone. Armed with knowledge and zeal from the meeting in
Minneapolis, I sat down to implement a project with PostGIS and MapServer.
I have been able to see my PostGIS layer with the QGIS client so my next
though was to set up a WFS server so that I could view it with ArcMap (9.0
w/Data Interopability thingy for now; is 9.1 any better?).
I am using Debian testing with Debian-GIS packages, which I believe are all
updated. I am using a ~user account and the wrapper script suggested at
My GetCapabilities request seems fine. Try this:
but when I try the GetFeature test with
I get a 500 Internal Server Error. The Apache2 error log gives the
enigmatic "Premature end of script headers: trees" message. I have found
many references to this error in the list archives, but always in a
different context, as far as I can tell.
At first I thought it was a problem with my wfs_onlineresource metadata when
I noticed that it didn't match -- still had host/cgi-bin/mapserv... from the
example, but changing that had no visible effect.
What else can I tell you to flesh out the situation? You should be able to
see my map file at http://geo.neiu.edu/~neiuveg/trees.map Thanks for your
comments and suggestions. In the meantime I will try to set up a separate
service using some shapefile data -- back to basics.
