Is your Config file split up into several files, does your config file call (if thats the correct
word to use) other config files from elsewhere after your personal additions / alterations.
  If so this would i guess override all your own work?

Are you altering the correct Config File?  Is Apache reading some other config file and or
some other files?

Look closely at the errors: "/var/www/html/cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi"
It is looking in the html folder because you don't have the domain or ip before the cgi-bin.
I am unsure how to access the cgi-bin from the folder html without domain unless you have
the cgi-bin in the html folder like:

/var/www/html/cgi-bin/myfile.cgi would work with action="cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi" and even "/cgi-bin...

To access upwards .../cgi-bin/ should work.

  If I have <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION=”cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi”>     the error is    The
file /var/www/html/cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi cannot be found


  If I have <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION=”mycgi.cgi”>     the error is    The file /var/www/html/mycgi.cgi
cannot be found


  If I have <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION=”/cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi”>  the error is  The file
/cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi cannot be found


  So how do I get it to look in /var/www/cgi-bin    


  I’ve put  ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/  “/var/www/cgi-bin/”  in the config file, dosen’t
this do it?
