 	It occurs to me that the last two entries might both be relevant, as 
they have the same timestamp.  I will assume that you have already moved your 
script to C:/xampp/cgi-bin/new433.cgi

 	After doing some googling, most of the suggestions relating to this 
sort of problem were suggesting that the problem is in your Apache 
configuration file.

 	Having said that, after looking at everything closely, I suspect that 
Jacinta has actually given you the correct answer.

 	Just to answer some of your not-quite-questions, I'll make a few 

 	Apache spawns multiple child processes by default, so that it can deal 
with multiple incoming requests at the same time; it also means that it makes 
more effective use of the processors on multi-processor machines.

 	FileZilla can be thought of as "FTP client on steroids", especially in 
that it does SCP/SSH type transfers too.  The idea, though, is that you would 
use this to upload your files to your ISP after you've created your website.
