Fix for /perl-status config (481 bytes, patch)

Description Ville Skyttä 2003-09-06 16:42:13 UTC
The example configuration in /etc/httpd/conf.d/perl.conf for /perl-status in
1.99_09-8 doesn't work; Apache::Status seems to need Apache::compat and the
documentation at http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/api/Apache/Status.html uses the
modperl handler instead of perl-script.  Additionally, with the modperl handler,
"PerlOptions +GlobalRequest" seems to be needed.  Patch follows.

Fix for /perl-status config

Comment 2 Gary Benson 2003-09-08 11:28:15 UTC
I've added the PerlModule Apache::compat line to perl.conf, but I left the other
two out.  The other example in the file uses the perl-script handler, so for
consistency I've left the status example using it too, and if you do change it
to modperl then it's pretty obvious that you need "PerlOptions +GlobalRequest".
 Does this seem reasonable?

Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2003-09-08 15:12:37 UTC
Yes, I noticed that the perl-script / no PerlOptions +GlobalRequest combination
works too.  Sounds ok to me.  I'm not sure what to do with the status of this
bug so reassigning... :)

Comment 4 Gary Benson 2003-09-08 15:36:29 UTC
Reassigning is cool; I'll close it when I've built the new package...
