Why am I getting a 403 Forbidden Error?
A 403 Forbidden error occurs when the web server finds itself with insufficient permissions to run your script.
Make sure you have given the script proper permissions. In SSH, this is accomplished with:
chmod 755 scriptname.cgi
If you are uploading via FTP, your FTP client probably has some facility for setting file permissions. You want to make sure that all choices (user, group, and other) have execute permission.

Nope. Though in CGI you may get an error: Premature end of header
If you get this you need to make sure it is in dos or unix format as appropiate.

The forbidden error (403) can be not only with the cgi-bin files but it can happen to any other files also. Take for example you have set the incorrect permission to the public_html file then you will surely get the forbidden error. This is to be noted and should not be confused that the 403 error can be found to files other then those in the cgi-bin too.
