And before this you have ran htdig -c (conf-file)?

As Geoff pointed out, that is not a really good way doing this. In my
search.html reads:

<FORM METHOD="post" ACTION="http://test.server.dom/cgi-bin/htsearch">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="config" VALUE="testserver">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="method" VALUE="all">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="format" VALUE="builtin-long">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="sort" VALUE="score">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="restrict" VALUE="">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME ="exclude" VALUE="">
<INPUT TYPE="text" SIZE="10" NAME="words" VALUE="">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Search!">

So, all you have to do is to name your config-file (see my search.html's
2nd line) in your form. I've stored my config file in the default htdig
config directory and named the config file testserver.conf.
