Last night I spend several hours trying to get a website working with apache22 and then apache20 and mod_perl2. I never succeeded.

This website works fine with apache1.3.* and mod_perl. We run the UBB bulletin board, which is written in perl. All the executable files are named *.cgi.

I googled and read document after document, waded through the apache mod_perl site until my eyes were crossed, all to no avail. In apache20, after configuring httpd.conf in what I thought was the right way, I got a Forbidden error. Obviously, I checked perms (even made the 777 briefly), but no go. In apache22, all I ever got was the plain text of the program file.

Does anyone know of a website that can unlock the mystery of mod_perl2 on apache2? I figure sooner or later I'm going to have to move to apache2, but I sure can't do that until I figure out how to get it working.
