I have to make a submit button for a form...
I already have the button and called the action as "form.cgi"
but all this does it print the txt of the cgi file and it doesnt process it...

Does anyone have any ideas?

Is the cgi module enabled?
Is the cgi file executable?
Is cgi enabled in this directory?

For a start, check if the file cgi.load is in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled. If it's not, run:

cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled && ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/cgi.load .
Restart Apache and try again with the form.
