Ideally, I would move to 2.3.x. But there is no package available for it for this OS (as I
said, I don't manage the box), so I would have to compile it myself, and as there *is* a mod_fcgid
package installed, I would be competing with the package management system, and am likely
to have my module overwritten...

If I can't get anything to work otherwise, I will probably go this route, but it's my last

I think I must be missing something here.

I have the following layout

		- docs  [the document root]
		- provider [ the psgi app I'm trying to run]

I then have an alias statement

	Alias /provider /var/www/html/provider

If I do

	AddHandler fcgid-script psgi
	<Location "/provider">
		SetHandler provider-app
		Action provider-app "/provider/app.psgi" virtual

I get an error about recursion.

If I change the location to <Location "/provider2">, I get a 404 page not found.

If I add the stanza

	<Directory "/var/www/html/provider">
		Options +ExecCGI
		SetHandler fcgid-script

this doesn't seem to change anything.

I'm not sure what I should be doing? I think there's some basic issue with Alias/Action/AddHandler/SetHandler
that I'm missing, and the documentation doesn't seem to be helping.
