It worked fine, but when I reinstalled RH it does not work any more. The ordenary httm page shows just fine. but my cgi files do not open. They have the right porperties (755). when I try to open a cgi file it say misconfuguration. Does anyone know which configuration it might refer to.

Check the ScriptAlias definition in your Apache config file and make sure it point to your cgi-bin directory. Also the Directory definiton has to allow the cgi's to be executed. Something like:

<Directory "/opt/Apache/htdocs/mystic/cgi-bin">
    AllowOverride None
    Options +ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

 will probably work for you.

1. Opne the file /etc/conf/httpd.conf or in /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf

2. Make the follwoing entries :-

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
                               
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/"

#
# "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have that Configured.
#<Directory "/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin">
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>          


3. Surely it has to work out
4. If it is not working try to get RPM installation from rpmfind and install it.

I had the same problem when upgrading my RedHat. I was doing exacly as Sokka proposed, and it solved the problem.

To a newbie in RedHat, I always suggested to install all packages from the same bundle.
