I never used museum.cgi.

However, this seems to be a configuration problem. You need to put
collection.cgi in a place where your web-server can find it and where it's
allowed to execute it. Usually, a place like this is called cgi-bin. And, of
course, your web-server needs perl support in some way.

You need librrds-perl as mentioned in /usr/share/doc/collectd/README (on

  * Sample scripts to generate graphs reside in `contrib/' in the source
    package or somewhere near `/usr/share/doc/collectd' in most distributions.
    Please be aware that those script are meant as a starting point for your
    own experiments.. Some of them require the `RRDs' Perl module.
    (`librrds-perl' on Debian)
