What operating system?

If you're running a Unix, Linux or similar, the file extension should be quite unimportant,
but make sure the CGI has execute permission for the web server.

What happens when you execute the CGI from the commandline?

As long "/webserver/cgi-bin/" is the correct *local* *filesystem* path to the directory where
your CGI is located, that seems fine.
