You don't have permission to access /first.pl on this server.
after this error i changed the ownership of cgi-bin and the script to my user name but even after that this is the error message, the serve runing apche. and this is the apache error log;
[Mon Oct 30 16:56:16 2006] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: first.pl
[Mon Oct 30 16:59:56 2006] [error] [client] Options ExecCGI is off in this directory: /var/www/html/first.pl
