Subject Is "PerlOptions +Parent" per directory or not?
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2014 15:54:18 GMT

according to the docs[1] "PerlOptions +Parent" is available per
directory, the example even uses a "Location" block. But if I try
that, I always get the following error:

> Invalid per-directory PerlOption: Parent

I tried that in the past years time and again with always the same
result that it simply doesn't work, not in Location or Directory
blocks, not in .htaccess, nowhere. Yesterday I even tried to dig in
the mod_perl source code to have a look if I'm doing something wrong,
but I ended up in modperl_options.c, where I don't understand who
initially defines which option is per directory or per server.

Additionally I searched the web of course and there are some
comparable discussions, but with no solution and the documentation is
still as it is.

So, is the documentation simply wrong and someone needs to update it?
If so, who do I need to talk to to get that changed once and for all?

If +Parent should work per directory, any hints on what I'm doing
wrong? There are no other messages in the Apache log and I'm simply
copying the documented lines. Did any of you ever successfully used a
per directory configuration like documented?

The reason I'm asking is that I have a legacy web app which I would
like to host in different versions under the same VirtualHost, but
that doesn't work if the same Perl interpreter is used for various
