That means that Apache doesn't know to execute the perl files. Something's
wrong with your Apache configuration or directory permissions. Some things
to check:

* Make sure the *.pl files in ../Rpad/server/ are set to enable execution.

* Check your apache http.conf. You need something like the following to tell
perl that those *.pl files are executable (with the directory renamed as

<Directory /var/www/Rpad/server*>  
  <IfModule mod_perl.c>
    <Files *.pl> # requires mod_perl
      SetHandler perl-script
      PerlHandler Apache::Registry
      Options +ExecCGI
      PerlSendHeader ON
  Options +ExecCGI
  AddHandler cgi-script .pl
  <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    ExpiresActive on
    ExpiresDefault "now plus 0 seconds"

* Check your apache error logs; they might give you some insight. 

If none of those fixes it, contact me offline with more details.
