then typing
chnod 755 test-cgi then enter


I get a message in terminal saying

    You must be a privileged user to do this - the instructions should have been more clear on that. Instead of doing "chmod 755 test-cgi", try doing "sudo chmod 755 test-cgi" - you'll be asked for a password, and you'll want to use an administrator password (if you're the only user on this OS X box, then use your Login password).
