Linux RH5.1

I have one web server running a bannernetwork, it is Apache 1.3b3 RH5.0 kernel 2.0.33 it sends
out the following:

Connected to bannerbyt.dk.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /nph-bb.cgi?num=1
HTTP/1.0 302
Cache-control: no-cache
Location: /bbp/4499.gif
Content-type: text/html

<head><title>Object Moved</title>
<a href="/bbp/4499.gif"><h1>BannerByt Picture</h1></a>
Connection closed by foreign host.

But when I make the same request running Apache 1.3b7 it closes the connection before sending
the above output. The script runs correctly, I can verify that through an interactive shell,
so the output from the CGI scripts is indeed as under Apache 1.3b3

And when making the request it enters the logfile with a fine 200 so Apache does not think
it is in error.

When we developed the banner network we decided to go with nph- cgi's to control the caching
of banners. But when I read the FAQ it says that nph- more or less was of no importance in
1.3 only in 1.2, that was indeed not the case for 1.3b3 in the way we did it.

And now, well I can make the script run by changing the script to bb.cgi omitting the nph-
but if thats the solution for me, that means telling 4000 individuals to once again change
their html code.

So how do I make 1.3b7 behave like 1.3b3 ?

The above four are alle the EXACT same scripts. The two first are on 1.3b3 and the two last
ones are on 1.3b7
No. And it is not possible for us to change from one html tag to another, as we estimate a
loss of 10% of all members performing such an operation.
