Which htdig rpm did you install? For Red Hat 7.0, you should use the RPM
for htdig-3.1.5-6 that comes with the 7.0 PowerTools.

If you run rundig, you don't need to run htmerge separately. The rundig
script will run htdig followed by htmerge. You should try running
your /var/www/cgi-bin/htsearch program right from the command line
first, to see if that works. If it does, it may be an Apache server
configuration problem, or a problem with your search form. Did you
make any changes to the /var/www/html/htdig/search.html search form?
If so, see
