Subject Apache2::Request fouls up content length?
Date Fri, 19 Jan 2007 00:06:54 GMT
I'm still hoping for a good answer on my previous build problem.
But for now I'm proceeding with testing using the mod_perl that
my hosting provider set up.

The first script that I've tested that uses Apache2::Request gives
a problem.  The browser sits and waits for its timeout period,
then the complete expected response is available.  My limited
experience suggests this is probably because the response's
content-length value is fouled up (or the header isn't sent?).

My "server signature" is
Apache/2.2.3 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.3 OpenSSL/0.9.7e-p1  
mod_apreq2-20051231/2.5.7 mod_perl/2.0.2 Perl/v5.8.7 Server at

OS is FreeBSD 6.  The problem happens under both http: and https:.

mod_deflate and mod_include are also active for the transaction.

Anyone can see the problem at

which is the site's contact form.  If you just hit "send" without  
anything, you'll get a response that says you didn't enter anything,
but it will take a long time.

Apache2::Request had bigger problems until I included the following
line in httpd.conf:
LoadModule apreq_module modules/

That .so was also provided by my hosting provider (Verio).

Does this sound familiar?  Could it be avoided by newer versions of
any of the software?
