On most Apache installations, by default, you must put CGI programs
in Apache's cgi-bin directory, or give the program name a .cgi suffix,
for the server to recognize the program as a CGI. Otherwise, instead of
running the program, it just returns the contents of the executable file.
Also make sure the program has execute permission on it.
