Description Trevin Beattie 2007-09-06 15:07:17 EDT
Description of problem:
"Options => 'ExecCGI'" is rejected in a <Perl> section in contexts where
"Options ExecCGI" is normally allowed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mod_perl-2.0.2-6.1 (with httpd-2.2.3-6.el5)

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a .conf file containing:
    <Perl>
        $Directory{"/var/www/cgi-bin"} = {
            Options => 'ExecCGI',
        };
    </Perl>
2. Run "service httpd configtest".

Actual results:
Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_perl_bug.conf:
$parms->add_config() has failed: Option ExecCGI not allowed here at
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Apache2/PerlSections.pm
line 203.\n

Expected results:
Syntax OK

Additional info:
The following configuration does not result in an error:
    <Directory "/var/www/cgi-bin">
        Options ExecCGI
    </Directory>

This bug has been reported for other distributions:
http://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:FAQ:Software_Matrix#Apache
http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-bugs-closed@lists.debian.org/msg140739.html

The solution in both cases was to upgrade to mod_perl 2.0.3 or higher.
