is there someplace I can get help with the freeware version of mailmachine?

I followed all the directions i found online (3rd party website i think), but got stuck.

I got everything done up to when you enter the url to go into the admin section.
I saved the cgi file
made changes to the cgi file as necessary (customized it)
uploaded the cgi file to my cgi-bin
created a text file of email addresses
uploaded the text file to cgi-bin
entered html code to create form on webpage (worked fine)
created an archive folder in my cgi-bin
changed the premissions for the three files as instructed

then i went to the url http://www.mypage.com/cgi-bin/mailmachine.cgi?admin (http://www.mypage.com/cgi-bin/mailmachine.cgi?admin) (edited with my page url of course)

and i got a internal server error message (500)

can someone let me know what I might have missed/done wrong?https://www.mailmachinepro.com/forums/images/smilies/confused.gif
thanks!
