ScriptAlias having no effect on ability to execute .cgi files

I have enabled alias_module and cgi_module in my apache 2.2 installation. I have added a section:

    <IfModule alias_module>
       ScriptAlias /digin-cgi/ "/opt/openbdjam/webroot1/push20/digin-cgi/"

my scripts are 'x' executable permissioned and live in the file system directory **/opt/openbdjam/webroot1/push20/digin-cgi**. However, when i go to my webserver (something like the address below) in a browser i just get a 404 not found:


In case it matters - my server root is set to:

    DocumentRoot "/opt/openbdjam/webroot1"

no amount of restarting helps!

any ideas?

Do you have this in your conf file:

AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

and what do your error logs say exactly?

Yes i have that

Just realised that a proxy setting was overriding all my others:

changed :

ProxyPass /


ProxyPass /push20

and works!
