Do my Apache error_logs contain any useful information?

It depends. When a Perl script encounters an "Internal Server Error" for whatever reason or a "Forbidden" message when executed via the web, useful information is logged to your error_log, located in your logs directory.

When you execute Perl scripts through the command line, any errors encountered are not logged to this file. The usefulness of this file applies only to the execution of Perl scripts through the web.

A good technique is to open your cpanel and download your logs that you may check for errors.

Pleasee remember that all scripts should be chmodded 755.
