I've checked the web pages and the FAQ, but haven't found any hints for
this problem. I'm installing htdig for the first time. When I run
htsearch from the prompt, I get results indicating I have the
index/db/etc set up correctly. When I run the search form, I get

500 Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was
unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of
the time the error occurred , and
anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

Error: HTTPd: malformed header from script

Running from the prompt, I get

Enter value for words: lions
Content-type: text/html
Enter value for format: long

Then I get the results back.

Any and all help/advise would be appreciated.
