I have my doubts that you are editing the right part of the right
config file, since I have never seen an apache config file without a
DocumentRoot directive. Are you using a SuSE version of apache or one
downloaded from If you put an obvious syntax error
in there, do you get an error in the error_log when you restart

If you go ahead and open the file in an editor, do you get the source
code of the perl script or its output?

What exactly do you get in the apache access log for this request?
