Perplexed Ad Naseum

[ #15887 ]
I'm dying over here. God, this is so frustrating.

Yes, I'm still trying to figure out what I've hosed on my Apache config. works, but fails horribly.

I've followed the Apache documentation to the letter, and still NO JOY FOR ME.

Here's the pertinent parts from my httpd.conf:

AddHandler cgi-script .pl .cgi
ScriptAlias /music/ /var/www/htdocs/exitwound/music/
&ltDirectory /var/www/htdocs/exitwound/music&gt
AllowOverride All
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm index.shtml index.cgi
Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks MultiViews +ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

I've had conflicting advise regarding the ending '/' on the ScriptAlias line. The Apache docs say it's supposed to be there, but the result is always the same whether it's there or not.

The log file says: attempt to invoke directory as script: /var/www/htdocs/exitwound/music

Dear God ... this should not be this difficult. I'm astounded ... it's never happened like this before ...
