           Summary: add line about loading cgi_module to Apache Tutorial:
                    Dynamic Content with CGI
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ziggurism@gmail.com


I've just finished getting CGI up and running.  I was following the Apache
Tutorial: Dynamic Content with CGI at 
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/cgi.html
It contains a troubleshooting section (But it's still not working! -->  The
source code of your CGI program or a "POST Method Not Allowed" message).  This
is exactly the error I was getting for quite a while; when loading the cgi
script, I saw only the source code of the script, never the output.  The
tutorial suggested that my config was wrong, so I spent a long time trying
different variations of my Directory, Alias, ScriptAlias, AddHandler, and
Options directives.  Nothing worked.

In the end, the fix was to uncomment the LoadModule cgi_module, which was
commented out by default.  I don't know if that's apache's default configuration
or Gentoo's.  Either way, I know it's obvious, but it took me a long time to
find that obvious solution.  It would be helpful if the troubleshooting section
contained a sentence saying to make sure that you have your LoadModule
cgi_module line uncommented.
