Sorry, I missed that bit in your e-mail.

That does seem to indicate more of a problem with the configuration of 
the /cgi-bin/ directory for that website.

If you haven't had any success with the Virtualmin/Webmin guys, another 
thing to look at is the Apache error log for your domain when calling 
the .lc script in the public_html directory from a web browser.  In your 
case, it looks like it would probably be /home/htoday/logs/error_log.  
The error log will often reveal more information about the actual error, 
than what you see displayed in the browser.

If you have other sites working under Virtualmin, you could also compare 
the Apache config for a domain that is working to one that isn't - in 
particular the ScriptAlias lines and the config in the <Directory 
/home/xxx/cgi-bin> section for your site.  You can find the Apache 
config for the domain in Virtualmin under "Services" - "Configure 
Website" - "Edit Directives".
