But my index is in the cgi-bin, not in /var/www/html/
What? Can you explain that? From the vhost configuration you've posted there is no such thing

[Tue Jun 22 05:39:26 2010] [error] [client 198.96.35.78] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/www/html/
[Tue Jun 22 05:39:26 2010] [error] [client 198.96.35.78] Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden: /var/www/error/noindex.html
Are you using any rewrite rules?
What is the apache general DocumentRoot? If it's /var/www/html, changing the DocumentRoot for the vhost to /var/www is not going to work, because by default apache forbids access to the directories above the DocumentRoot
If it's correct, add
Code:
Options +Indexes
or create an index.html page.

I have a perl script, so the index.cgi is in the /var/www/cgi-bin/


The vhost for my site is :

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName domain.net
ServerAlias www.domain.net
DocumentRoot /var/www
ServerAdmin support@domain.net
<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody
</IfModule>
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
</VirtualHost>

If you want to use index.cgi as an index page, then you need some changes in your vhost definition:
Code:
<VirtualHost *>
ServerName domain.net
ServerAlias www.domain.net
DocumentRoot /var/www/cgi-bin
DirectoryIndex index.cgi
ServerAdmin support@domain.net
<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody
</IfModule>
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
</VirtualHost>

but this vhost is the template for the default setup of the site, non-ssl, so how comes it doesnt work with sSL its the same directory? I will try your way now.

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName domain.net
ServerAlias www.domain.net
DocumentRoot /var/www
ServerAdmin support@domain.net
<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody
</IfModule>
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
</VirtualHost>
