Configure apache2 to run with cgi

I have install Ubuntu and apache2 at home for the first time, and I'm getting crazy to configure the apache2 to run in the port 9999 (or other bigger them 1024).

I have commented everything at ports.conf and I'm trying to set the httpd.conf as



AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
Listen 3000
NameVirtualHost *:3000
<VirtualHost *:3000>
   ServerName oleber.myserver.com
   ServerAdmin my_user@mail.pt
   DocumentRoot /servers/my_path/html
   ErrorLog /servers/my_path/logs/error_log.txt
   TransferLog /servers/my_path/logs/access_log.txt
</VirtualHost>


with the previews configuration I'd be expecting to have already a static webpage server.

But I'm needing to have a cgi directory to

static webpages: /servers/my_path/html
cgi webpages: /servers/my_path/html

Thanks for the help

Jan SpringerCommented:
In your global configuration, there is a directory called 'ServerName'.  If this server has a name, i.e., "my.server.com", set it there.

If the apache config does not have this specified, it means that it will use 127.0.1.1 address as the server name.

1) Specify the cgi-bin path
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/path/to/cgi-bin/"

2) Comment this out thusly
   # NameVirtualHost *:3000

3) Recommend specifying an FQDN for the ServerName directive in the global config

More for documentation for others:

1º I copyed the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default to /etc/apache2/sites-available/my_site

2º I alter it to my directories in the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/my_site

3º I created a soft link in the directory /etc/apache2/sites-enabled to the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/my_site

4º I added more 'Listen 3000' to the file ports.conf

5º I set a port to the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default



The only problem for now seems to be a warning message when I'm starting the servers:

 * Restarting web server apache2                                                                                            apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName

What thus this means?
