I hit this issue very often.  Error line 1 is a sign that there is a
problem with the way the old CGI template is passing parameters to
mapserv.  This has to do with changes made to MapServer 5.0 in how to
pass parameters (give a good read to:

You might try even removing your whole line '<input type="hidden"
name="map_web_imagepath" value="/var/www/mapserver/tmp/">' or changing
it to match the correct syntax.
