On a new RHEL 7.5 server, I'm trying to get mod_fcgid to run on a simple perl script. I had previously been using mod_perl on an older server, with no issues.  I have confirmed that fcgi_module is installed and running. Server is Apache 2.4.6.

httpd.conf:
AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi

hello.fcgi:
#!/usr/bin/perl
print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
print "hello world";

Error log:
[Fri Oct 12 17:33:50.655808 2018] [fcgid:warn] [pid 13551] (104)Connection reset by peer: [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxxxxx] mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server
[Fri Oct 12 17:33:50.655891 2018] [core:error] [pid 13551] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxxxx] End of script output before headers: hello.fcgi
