Please don't personalise the thread - use a subject which describes the
problem and don't change it.

I am a bit confused because you didn't answer all my questions from the
previous mail. I'm not sure your ScriptAlias is pointing to the correct
directory where you have your script. Please confirm *each* of these

- the full path to your script is /usr/lib/cgi-bin/ ?
- you have "ScriptAlias /cgi-bin /usr/lib/cgi-bin" in httpd.conf?
- you are testing with http://server/cgi-bin/ ?

In your first mail you reported:

>1.Exec format error.execution of /usr/lib/ failed

which does not agree with what you say above.
