Description Ville Skyttä 2002-10-05 06:44:39 EDT
The tehnique presented in
doesn't work with mod_perl-1.99_05-3 in the server config files.  The perl code
sample in the document (Apache::exists_config_define("MODPERL2")) works, but
<IfDefine MODPERL2> doesn't.

To reproduce, put this in /etc/httpd/conf.d/perl.conf and try to restart httpd:

LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so
<IfDefine !MODPERL2>
# This should not be touched, since we're running with mod_perl 2
PerlModule Doesnt::Exist

If you put that bit of code in a .htaccess you'll find that MODPERL2 _is_
getting defined, but it must be happening after httpd.conf and the conf.d files
are parsed.

I'll refer this to the mod_perl developers.
