When using DirectoryIndex with a CGI script at an absolute URI the script is called without
PATH_INFO and PATH_TRANSLATED information. Without this it is impossible for the script to
present a directory idex. (Note that no arguments with path informaton are passed to the script.
Nor is the working directory set to the path.)
Configure DirectoryIndex for a given location. Eg,

<Location />
Options Indexes
DirectoryIndex /cgi-bin/index.pl

Created index.pl with the code

use Data::Dumper;
print "content-type: text/html\n\n<pre>", Dumper( \@ARGV, \%ENV ), "</pre>";

Now use the URL


and you will see that the environment variable dump does not include the PATH_INFO or PATH_TRANSLATED
No. I am happy to look into fixing it if this would help. I assume the problem is in mod_autoindex,
but I do not know enough about the Apache code base to debug this further without quite some
