I have made some tweaks to httpd.conf without

  Here's what I have :

        DocumentRoot "/Users/http"
        ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/Users/http/run/"
        ScriptAliasMatch ^/cgi-bin/((?!(?i:webobjects)).*$) "/Users/http/run/$1"
        <Directory "/Users/http/run">
            AllowOverride None

This is wrong, it should be

Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

you need to tell apache that the files in that directory are cgi scripts. Please read

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/cgi.html

its all in there.


 
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
        </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>
    # end port 8080
These are the same settings as for the default (port 80) settings.
However, something is still lacking.
If I point my browser to
http://localhost/cgi-bin/cgitest.py
I get the output I expect.
If I point my browser to
http://localhost:8080/cgi-bin/cgitest.py
I still get a Not Found error.

/usr/sbin/apachectl configtest
gives me "Syntax OK"
thanks
