Please don't e-mail me directly with htdig questions. They should go to
the htdig@htdig.org mailing list.

According to Roman Gavirilov:

htsearch does output the headers required by the CGI standard, so if
you're getting server errors, you should check the server error logs to
see what the problem is. Unless your server is expecting non-parsed
headers, which shouldn't be the case with Apache, the only required
HTTP header is "Content-Type: text/html", which htsearch will output
before any HTML code, unless something is causing it to crash before
it gets to that point.

Also have a look at the following FAQ entries:
