If I hit 127.0.0.1/cgi-bin/index.pl I see the output in browser.

If I hit If I hit 127.0.0.1/cgi-bin/about.pl I get an error in the apache log:

stderr from /var/www/cgi-bin/about.pl: AH01241: error spawning CGI child: exec of '/var/www/cgi-bin/about.pl' failed (Permission denied)

Both the index.pl and about.pl have exactly the same content (for debugging reasons)

Both the index.pl and about.pl have exactly the same owner and file permissions (chmod +a)

I can execute the about.pl file manually like ./about.pl and see the correct output

My apache config looks like this:

# # This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains + the # configuration directives that give the server its instructions. # See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/> for detailed information +. # In particular, see # <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html> # for a discussion of each configuration directive. # # See the httpd.conf(5) man page for more information on this configur +ation, # and httpd.service(8) on using and configuring the httpd service. # # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding # what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are +unsure # consult the online docs. You have been warned. # # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for ma +ny # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32 +), the # server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so 'log/access_log +' # with ServerRoot set to '/www' will be interpreted by the # server as '/www/log/access_log', where as '/log/access_log' will be # interpreted as '/log/access_log'. # # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's # configuration, error, and log files are kept. # # Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path. If you point # ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on t +he # Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used. If you wish to sha +re the # same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change +at # least PidFile. # ServerRoot "/etc/httpd" # # Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or # ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost> # directive. # # Change this to Listen on a specific IP address, but note that if # httpd.service is enabled to run at boot time, the address may not be # available when the service starts. See the httpd.service(8) man # page for more information. # #Listen 12.34.56.78:80 Listen 80 # # Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support # # To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a + DSO you # have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so t +he # directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are +used. # Statically compiled modules (those listed by `httpd -l') do not need # to be loaded here. # # Example: # LoadModule foo_module modules/mod_foo.so # Include conf.modules.d/*.conf # # If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run # httpd as root initially and it will switch. # # User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as. # It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for # running httpd, as with most system services. # User apache Group apache # 'Main' server configuration # # The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main' # server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a # <VirtualHost> definition. These values also provide defaults for # any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file. # # All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers, # in which case these default settings will be overridden for the # virtual host being defined. # # # ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be # e-mailed. This address appears on some server-generated pages, such # as error documents. e.g. admin@your-domain.com # ServerAdmin root@localhost # # ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify +itself. # This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you spe +cify # it explicitly to prevent problems during startup. # # If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP addres +s here. # #ServerName www.example.com:80 # # Deny access to the entirety of your server's filesystem.

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
