That's good. The documentation is available online ;)

It's likely that Ovid is right and you cannot configure anything at all, but if you can, I think the following will be configurable as it is no danger for the server.

# .htaccess file <Files index.html> SetHandler cgi-script </File>

Now you can simply put a Perl Script in "index.html" and it will work.

If you only want it to be index.html because it is the directory index, there's a better method:

DirectoryIndex index.cgi

You don't need any index.html now, just create index.cgi (or if you like) and it will be directory index.
