    Struggling here after years with IIS! Why can't I change permissions on the test-cgi file? The server gives "operation not permitted".
    am I completely thick, but I can't find the config file. I can't see the etc/httpd directory at all. I have admin permissions but not that familiar with Mac x on which this is running

      The /etc/httpd directory is not visible in the finder, even when you log in as root. To open hidden files use either the 'pico' command in the terminal or use BBEdit's 'open hidden...' option.

    I do not understand how "cgi-bin" becomes part of the paths when it does NOT exist.

      "cgi-bin'' is a special name that refers to the /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables directory. If you're throwing your script in /Library/WebServer/cgi-bin/ then it will not work without further configuration tweaking.
