AAAAhhhhh... Looks like the error log has the answer.
In fact it appears that apache is executing your CGI.  The
problem seems to be that the CGI is generating an
incorrect header.
You need to fix the CGI, be sure that the header is
something like:
Content-type: text/html
or whatever content type you want.
For more help with CGIs try

This is the output of the exe program:

Content-type: text/html
<head><title>Trial CGI program</title></head>
<body><h1>Trial CGI program</h1>
This is a trial CGI program

and this is my PERL script:

print "Content-type: text/html", "\n\n";

print "<html>", "\n";
print "<head><title>Trial CGI script</title></head>","\n";
print "<body bgcolor = #000000 text = #ffffff>","\n";
print "<h1>This is a trial CGI Script</h1>","\n";
print "</body></html>";

exit (0);

Is this an alright header?
