If you download and open this file, what is inside? If it is the
output of your cgi script, then the problem is simply that your cgi
script is not sending the proper Content-Type header. If it is the
source-code of the cgi-script, on the other hand, this means that you
haven't configured apache to treat the file as a CGI script. You can
do this with the AddHandler or SetHandler directive, although it is
done automatically if you use ScriptAlias.
