Subject [users@httpd] 2.0.43, mod_negotiation, and cgi
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2003 04:45:04 GMT

Under 2.0.43, mod_negotiation doesn't seem to pick up cgi files. This
is the first 2.0.x release I've tested, after coming from 1.3.x where
cgi and mod_negotiation work fine.

Content negotiation is enabled, and so is cgi. CGI works fine if you call
the script using the full filename, as in

but does not work if the extension is left off, as in:

Negotiation works fine for .html, .shtml, .php, .txt..., basically
everything except .cgi. This is what shows up in the error log (the
file in this case was called test4.cgi):

[Sat Jan 04 04:27:06 2003] [error] [client] Negotiation: discovered file(s) matching
request: /net/ (None could be negotiated).

I checked the docs, but didn't see any mention of negotiation behaving
differently with cgi in 2.0. Any ideas?
