Subject Re: newbie, problems with perl .pl files under Apache 1.3.26
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2002 12:00:18 GMT
Enrique no he trabajado sobre windows 2000 y apache
pero si te sirve de idea te diría que actives en el
httpd.conf el server_status y mires que versión de
modulo perl carga y cula tenías antes, tambien mira
los logs para ver si hay fallos de conexión. Por otro
parece como si te hubiera perdido la extensión o no
asociará bien la extensión..lo siento me gustaría
ayudar más pero no se me ocurre.
