See section "HTTP Server" in the Bugzilla Guide.
The current version reads:

You'll want to make sure that your web server will run any file with
the .cgi extension as a cgi and not just display it. If you're using
apache that means uncommenting the following line in the srm.conf
file:
   AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
 
With apache you'll also want to make sure that within the access.conf
file the line:
Options ExecCGI
AllowOverride Limit
 
is in the stanza that covers the directories into which you intend to
put the bugzilla .html and .cgi files.

--- End Forwarded Message ---

The above section is incorrect as of Apache 1.3 and later.

Since Apache 1.3, the srm.conf and access.conf files have been deprecated. 
These statements should all be in the main httpd.conf file.

Barnboy, you can feel free to take this back if you want. :-)  I filed it while
you were "away" and Gerv seemed to be working on this stuff at the time.
