ScriptLogging is a little tricky. The main difference with the error_log
and transfer_log is that the logfile must be owned (or at least
writeable) by the apache User - i.e. not just by root. Secondly, the
file must exist before apache is started (it won't be created).

I usually do:

- login as apache User
- touch cgi_log
- su
- start apache
