Re: Setting up Apache2 with mod_perl and Apache2::AuthCookieLDAP

Little bit OT: Is this necessary to set up Cygwin Apache/Perl?

I view my development environment as "Linux". When I don't have bona fide Linux at my fingertips and they shove a Windows box under my keyboard I rely on Cygwin to provide a "Linux-like" environment. True it's not strictly "necessary" to set up a Cygwin Apache/Perl but it is what I'm best familiar and comfortable with.

First problem (minor): I can't figure out how to install Apache2 as a
Windows service. For now I can just do apachectl2 start but would like
to configure it as a real service. I've tried:

Adefaria-lt:cygrunsrv -I httpd2 -d 'CYGWIN Apache2' -p
/usr/sbin/httpd2.exe -a '-DNO_DETACH'
Adefaria-lt:net start httpd2
The CYGWIN Apache2 service is starting.
The CYGWIN Apache2 service could not be started.

The service did not report an error.

What's in Apache logs?


I suspect Apache was running at the time.

I just checked. Shut down Apache. Cleared the logfiles. Did net start httpd2. Errored out. Checked the logs - they're empty.

Adefaria-lt:grep -i 'addhandler cgi-script' /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
      AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
Adefaria-lt:cat ~/web/

It is long (like, 10-15 years long) since recommended to use filters instead
of handlers.
AddOutputFilter Perl .pl
AddInputFilter Perl .pl

I've always just used the handler.

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n";

Read pretty please.

Normally I use CGI and call start_html. This script I just grabbed off the net as a simple test. Note that LF works just find and CRLF does not seem to be required.
