Thanks for the tips. I still can't get it to run. The error logs say
that cgi ain't allowed in that directory.
I've added this to the apache2.conf:
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit Options
Options Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
But it doesn't seem to help. I've also tried to Options +ExecCGI or
Options ExecCGI in a .htaccess file but the error logs say Options not
allowed here (I thought AllowOverride Options would make that possible?)
I've of course restarted apache when I've made changes in the .conf.
I also tried to add the content-type version, but that doesn't make any
difference. And i'm running this from a normal directory.
Any ideas? Gaah I didn't thought it would be so hard to get cgi up and
running, I must be missing something obvious?
