Urgh ... okay, we have a different problem.
You may have read it on this list: Saerch does not return
any meaningful results. But we are using a database that has
gone the 2.0.0 -> 2.2.7 -> 2.2.8 route and now 2.2.9
and now has cacked it, spit the dummy, chucked up , etc. :(

I'm in Sydney. Welcome to Koha.

Now, perhaps you could try running the script from the command
line and see what happens, i.e.

cd /usr/local/koha

If that works, i.e. it executes the perl, then the problem is
in Apache, imho. If the script will not even start in the shell,
then the problem goes deeper.

(You will probably get a few perl errors about undefined modules
  if perl does execute, but who cares: that shows you that perl at
  least can execute the script)

Any belief that can't stand up to objective scrutiny is hardly worth having.
