Check /var/log/httpd for logs. See what they say. Use tail -f to monitor
the logs during the web server restart (e.g., "/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd
restart" before trying to view anything), and also while trying to use
the cgi url. Also, if files are supposed to be created, be sure that the
user that apache runs as has permission to do so (probably user
"apache"). You can do this as root and become "apache": "su -l apache",
then cd to the place it should write, and try writing a file.
