Subject Re: [users@httpd] Simple perl question
Date Thu, 11 Jan 2007 04:41:52 GMT
yeah, perl is not available at all from within the Apache chroot  
jail, unless I am missing something. Making the change to the  
LoadModule line you suggested allowed the various perl directives in  
the config file to load without complaint. Attempting to execute the  
script, however, results in a [error] (8)Exec format error: exec of / 
cgi-bin/perl/routers2.cgi failed This error is the same if I try with  
either a .cgi extension on the file or a .pl extension
