This was just posted today too

Over the years every once in a 
while I've tested Web Connection 
with Apache and its ISAPI extension 
support, but the support had been 
pretty flaky at best.


Part of the problem is that Apache does 
a number of things differently than IIS 
when handling requests.


I can tell you that figuring this out was 
not easy because I couldn't find any 
good information on what Apache does 


So now it looks like I'll have to run separate 
header routines for IIS and Apache. Using 
straight headers for IIS and using 
ServerSupportFunction() for Apache. Maybe 
somebody has some input here.


Enough for today. Maybe somebody has some 
input on how to get things Authentication to 
work properly with ServerSupportFunction. 
It looks like 
would work, but APACHE apparently doesn't 
support that so I'm back to square one.


ISAPI, IIS, Apache: I must be in Hell!

An alert "Apache Windows developer" 
should "jump" at the opportunity to 
contact/help this person...  :)
