Yes, that a known (at least to me) problem. Workaround is to let
Embperl::Object handle only the files you need, so Apache gets a chance to
pick up your index file. To do this add something like

EMBPERL_URIMATCH "\.htm.?|\.epl$"

Of course you need to customize the regex to catch the file extentions you
are using.

I know the documentation of Embperl 2.0 is really bad. Most things are not
updated from Embperl 1, so you run in the wrong direction sometimes. A lot
of things are not documentated at all. For me updateing the docs is the most
important thing at the moment, but it's a lot of work so it may take some
time, but step by step things should get better. (Just at the weekend I
wrote more about Embperl_UseEnv (not online yet) :-)

Anybody who likes to contribute is highly appreciated, but I fear at the
moment I have to first write things down once, before they can be improved.

Anyway comments, improments or help are always welcome
