Subject RE: Virtual hosts (was RE: .pl .cgi / cgi-scripts, handlers)
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2002 21:12:59 GMT
NO...there was nothing else i missed...
look...when apache first gets setup,
the default config file only says it will
execute cgi files with the extension " .cgi "

well, when I couldn't get it to work after going thru
countless discussions and docs,and posting of my httpd.conf file,
 someone posted that i needed to add that extension in the handler
 section of the main server global config. THAT WORKED !!!!

they couldn't find anything else wrong with the config.
at all. so I'm sorry if you disagree. I've used that method to help others
that have had the same problem...and it has worked for them as well.

It appears that the guys problem wasn't that at all. It was the 
content type set wrong, as i also suggested, if what i said didn't work.
so let's drop it.

I'll send my config, in a few
also, i already went thru countless docs about virtuals...
and posted several times...but everyone just tells me the same thing
GO LOOK AT THE DOCS...well the docs stinks as you also say.

That's a little like saying "I couldn't get my car to start until I washed
the windows; that's the only way it works; sorry if you disagree."  In
other words, there was almost certainly something else that you missed
that changed.

Sure.  Start with the following:

1. Carefully read and follow

2. If it still doesn't work, show us the relevant excerpt from your config
file and describe exactly what is happening when you try to access the
site and exactly what is in the error and access log.  It help alot if you
give real IP addresses and domain names as well.
