No, at least not so far. If Apache tries to execute a cgi with incorrent
permissions, it will throw a 500 (Internal Server Error), which isn't the

To the OP:

You need to heed the advice to simplify your configuration. The best way is
to use a vanilla configuaration with *minimal* changes to make it work on
