sending results to 2 people from info on form

I have an information form at the location below.  When I submit all I get is my visitor.pl code on the screen.
the mods are 755 on the files and the cgi-bin directory it is stored in.  On another unix system I was getting a 500 error in the code also.  I did not do the pl code but was told it would work.  all I want the pl to do is email to the sender and a receiver the data entered on the form.  from what I can see this form does more but at this point all I really want it to do is spit out the data the user entered on the form then pressed the submit button at bottom.  if there is any easier code I am all for it.

TIA

Looks like a webserver config problem. I would suspect this:

a) there is no association for .cgi extention, so webserver doesn't know how to treat .cgi files. Then, adding something like this

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
AddHandler cgi-script .pl  

to /usr/local/etc/httpd/conf/srm.conf would help

if it's this problem, webserver would display scripts as text

b) the cgi-bin directory in which the script resides is unknown to the webserver. NCSA-like (ex: Apache) servers will like this appended to the end of their /usr/local/etc/httpd/conf/access.conf file:

<Directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/path-to-your-cgi-bin/cgi-bin>
Options Indexes ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
DirectoryIndex index.html
</Directory>

if it's indeed this, it would generate 500 Server Error

what else ?
c) maybe, #!/usr/bin/perl -- is not a valid path to perl on the system. Check carefully. It would be 500 Server Error.

Good luck.
