ScriptAliasMatch works on Apache 2.2, doesn't on Apache 2.

I was running an Apache Server version 2.2 on Windows. I was using ActiveState Perl as my perl installation. I had some other code which was going to make a request of my IP address, and thus be requesting '/', I needed to redirect this request to a handler script.

Thus I added the following line to my httpd.conf:
ScriptAliasMatch ^/$ "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/cgi-bin/SBG_ReceivedMessageListener.pl"

This now worked fine, and all was right with the world.

Then I was told that I would need to port my code to Unix, Centos in particular, and that the version of Apache on that box would be 2.0.

I altered my httpd.conf file, including altering the previous ScriptAliasMatch line so that it now says:
ScriptAliasMatch ^/$ "/var/www/cgi-bin/SBG_ReceivedMessageListener.pl"

All of my other requests now work, but this one is a problem. When I try to issue a request I get the following error in a '404 Not Found' page, 'The requested URL / was not found on this server'. I also get the following in my error_log, '[error] [client 127.0.0.1] Attempt to serve directory: /var/www/html/'.

Any ideas on how to get this to work?

Thanks a lot.

I haven't tested it, but I think you have to define a ScriptAlias to cgi-bin. Which, so I think, is configured on windows.

I have the ScriptAlias command for the /cgi-bin/ directory. Other scripts I have work fine, just not the ones that are matched by the rule I described above.
