Okay, look...

I am not saying that your questions are uninteresting, nor am I
disrespecting your skills.  We are all nascent eggs loose in a sea of too
much information, all trying to make our way.

My point is that you seem to be having trouble setting up the CGI execution

In your submission, you state

To me, this hints that CGI is no longer strongly supported by the community
of developers that supports your platform.  I'm not in that community, so I
can't comment as to why that might be, but it seems plain that another
approach has taken over as the preferred method.

My naive recommendation is to stop using CGI, and use the PHP module
instead... to swim with the current, not against it.
