[Moin-user] Permissions problem

I have tried to install MoinMoin today on a Fedora Core 4 machine from the
usual repo. After going through all the configuration (see attachment) it
seems to work, but when I access the new wiki I get the following error
message in the browser:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable
to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, meyer at acm.org and inform them of
the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server at python.openspace.nl <meyer at acm.org> Port 80

The error log says the following:

[Wed Feb 22 14:56:35 2006] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied:
exec of '/usr/local/var/moin/diwiki/cgi-bin/moin.cgi' failed
[Wed Feb 22 14:56:35 2006] [error] [client] Premature end of
script headers: moin.cgi

I have also added the lines with permissions for access to the htdocs
directory and restarted httpd, but it doesn't help.

Any ideas?

thanks in advance for your help.
kind regards
