Can someone help me to get this to work? I'm doing some testing of Perl CGI Scripts for my website, but I don't know how to enable CGI Scripting. I found this website

but I can't modify my httpd.conf file. It seems like I don't have the proper permissions to make changes to this file, and chmod doesn't work for some reason.

You need to use sudo to give yourself admin privileges temporarily, like this:

sudo nano httpd.conf

It will ask for your password, then open httpd.conf in nano which is fairly self explanatory.
