= Attempt to invoke directory as script =

This occurs when Apache is configured with !ScriptAlias or !SetHandler and a request is made
for a directory path. The problem is that under those circumstances, all resources under a
certain path are considered to be executable.

To get around this and allow !DirectoryIndex to work again, use !AddHandler with Options ExecCGI,
or !SetHandler in a <Files> stanza.

For example, replace this:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin /var/www/cgi-bin
with this:
Alias /cgi-bin /var/www/cgi-bin
<Directory /var/www/cgi-bin>
 AddHandler cgi-script cgi pl
 Options ExecCGI
