What's wrong with these error message?

I'm trying to make bugzilla work on your webserver but I got this error when I try to test the server:

TEST-WARNING Failed to find the GID for the 'httpd' process, unable to validate webservergroup.
TEST-OK Got front picture.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at ./ line 101.
TEST-FAILED Webserver is not executing CGI files.
TEST-FAILED Webserver is permitting fetch of
Check your webserver configuration.

here's my httpd.conf:

ServerId: 33:33
ConnectionsTotal = 50
ConnectionsPerIP = 10
SystemLogfile = /var/log/hiawatha/system.log
GarbageLogfile = /var/log/hiawata/garbage.log

Binding {

CGIhandler = /usr/bin/php5-cgi:php
CGIhandler = /usr/bin/perl:pl
CGIhandler = /usr/bin/python:py
CGIExtension = cgi

FASTCGIserver {

VirtualHost {
Hostname = ourdomain
WebsiteRoot = /var/www/bugzilla
StartFile = index.cgi
AccessLogfile = /var/www/bugzilla/access.log
ErrorLogfile = /var/www/bugzilla/error.log
ExecuteCGI = yes

VirtualHost {
Hostname = phpmyadmin
WebsiteRoot = /var/www/phpmyadmin

What you think is wrong? phpmyadmin works fine by the way..

I've taken a look at Bugzilla and I've seen that there are several things wrong with Bugzilla. It has been programmed very badly. The Bugzilla team strongly recommends the Apache webserver. That's because Apache allows you to write bad HTTP and bad CGI and it will still works. And that's exacly the reason why I started to write my own webserver. Apache doesn't follow the HTTP and CGI standards!!

If I run index.cgi from the commandline, I expect to see HTML. Instead, all I get is errormessages. It's a real irony that a program build for tracking bugs is really buggy and ugly written.

I'm sorry, but I don't think Bugzilla will work with Hiawatha. Hiawatha does and will always will follow the standards strictly. I've no intention to cripple Hiawatha to make it run crappy software like Bugzilla. Sorry!
