dumb error ??

I'm trying to set up a cron job for my cgi-script. But i'm getting the following error-message:

Permission denied at /home/wantedto/www/cgi-bin/2mripper.cgi line 76.
Content-type: text/html

I assume this means the line 'Content-type: text/html' may not be executed, but it must because I will get an error 500 message if i delete that line.  

My host is 2mhost.com, their support staff seem to be on vacation... i haven't heard from them since 3 days.

If the line in the script says just "Content-type: text/html", try to change it to  

print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";

Also try to run command below
chmod 755 2mripper.cgi
