Also, check the CGI setup on your new installation. Does the new machine use 
suexec to run CGI scripts? Check for a suexec.log file in the httpd logs 
directly, and see whether it tells you why it won't run the CGI script. The 
apache website has a whole section on suexec, so you should be able to work 
out why things aren't working, if this is really the case.

If you do have suexec running with your webserver, the easiest way to check 
whether it's causing the problem is to stop apache, temporarily rename 
suexec, restart apache, and try the script again... though be aware you are 
running less securely while you do this.
