I figured it out.... I didn't have the ExecCGI set for the directory in
Apache.conf

Anyone work with Endymian Mailman?

I get the following error, copied from my lynx screen, ignore the "#":
#########################################
403 Forbidden

                                   Forbidden

   You don't have permission to access /www/mail/mmprood.cgi on this
   server.
     _________________________________________________________________


    Apache/1.3.6 Server at cx559415-b.ftwal1.fl.home.com Port 80
##########################################
This is my first stab at running a web server. It is a FreeBSD 3.2 machine.
I used tar and placed the files in /home/www/mail. I used the default
install for apache 1.3.6 and the default start of web files is
/usr/local/share/apache/htdocs. I have a symbolic link "www" that moves you
over to /home/www/ were I have more HD space.

Following the faq, I used "chmod 755 mmprood.cgi" and the first line in the
cgi correctly points to perl. I even ran "perl mmprood.cgi" from the command
line both as root and a normal user and it ran correctly. However, when
using my browsers, IE5, Netscape4.61, and Lynx, I get the above error.

"ls -l *.cgi" shows:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 nobody  wheel  139081 Oct 18 06:53 mmprood.cgi
-rwxr--r--  1 nobody  wheel     990 Oct 17 06:00 simple.cgi

My guess is something in the apache.conf file since "perl mmprood.cgi"
crtl+d gives me that stream of html, but I don't know enough about
apache.conf to understand. When I first pointed my browser to mmprood.cgi,
the browser just displayed it as if it was a text file. I fixed that by
uncommenting a line in the apache.conf file and then rebooted the server.

As you can see, I know enough the get myself in trouble. Any thoughts?

Cheers
-Mark
