in reply to problem with creation of db file

When i click a submit on the form for a guest book the cgi script dies and leaves a message on the web server error log(Apache running on linux) that i can't open dbm file. While i execute the same program on the command line it executes and creates a db file.
I'd take a look at permissions. Apache often runs as "nobody". I'm guessing that "nobody" doesn't have permission to create and / or read the files in question while the user you use test the script does have the permissions to create and read the files.

I hope this helps.
