First, you don't put CGI scripts within your regular HTML directory
structure, you put them in your cgi-bin directory. For instance, my
cgi-bin directory is /usr/bin/cgi-bin/. Here's the lines setting it up:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
Allow from all
The first line sets up www.yourwebsite.com/cgi-bin/ to point to the
actual directory outside your HTML tree. the next <Directory> setting
sets up the cgi-bin to allow execution of CGI scripts.
Anyways, you need to put your cgi in the cgi-bin directory for it to be
executed by the system. Give that a try.
