Subject RE: .pl .cgi / cgi-scripts, handlers
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2002 20:44:06 GMT
I went thru this problem before , when I first started with apache.
I tried everything, this is the only way it works...sorry...if you

but perhaps you know how to setup virtual domains
I've had a terrible time with those.  I've tried everything.
and what it seems to me, I think it has something to do with
having each sub-domain/virtual its own DNS (first) before 
setting them up in the config. I use to host 
my main server, But I need to setup other virtuals/subdomains
using same IP (static).

I'm not trying to argue either, especially over an issue this unimportant.
(As I said, the AddHandler does no harm; it just isn't necessary.)

But I don't like to let that kind of cargo cult statement stand.  That's
how we get dangerous things like <Limit GET POST> require valid-user
</Limit> perpetuated, even though that configuration has been wrong since
Apache 1.0.  The correct, minimal configuration for a cgi-bin directory
using ScriptAlias does NOT need an AddHandler cgi-script, nor an Options
execcgi.  If you don't believe me, check the documentation, the source
code, or the default httpd.conf file.
