I have installed XAMPP without any trouble (http://localhost works fine). The problem comes when I try to execute a script. Then I get the following message :
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.
couldn't create child process: 720005: script.cgi
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Apache/2.2.8 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.8 OpenSSL/0.9.8g mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.2.5
Note that "script.cgi" is a .exe file that I renamed because the basic instructions stated that .cgi was the only acceptable suffix for a CGI executable.
Does anyone have any suggestions? All ideas gratefully received.
