Does your script starts like this one?:
print "Content-Type: text/plain^/" ;<- this is important!
print "Hello World"
PHP controls the HTTP headers itself so you don't need to do it if you
don't want to. In Rebol you are responsible to send at least the
content type by yourself! There must be 2 newlines before start of the
If you are not using Win, you should also make sure you have correct
linebreaks so this may be good before upload to unix type of servers:
replace/all yourScript CRLF newline
If it's still not working, do you have right permissions on the Rebol
executable and the script as well?
I'm using Rebol on both op. systems with the Apache without problems.
PS: I'm not using the AddHandler and the Action settings in the Apache
config file, because I have no possibility to do it under the Unix
(I'm not an admin)
