Re: example/swish.cgi && mod_perl?

For the record, server-info is a great help, thanks for the pointer.
The problem was that I had placed my <Perl></Perl> before my closing
</IfDefine> for SSL.  If I had only been starting the server with SSL.
The obvious is below;

<IfDefine SSL>
<VirtualHost _default_:443>
require "swish.cgi";

It's up and running as a handler, Thanks Bill

Hum, looks ok.  Maybe you don't have <perl> sections enabled??  The require
should load it into perl at server startup.  Can you do a
http://foo/perl-status and look at the loaded modules to see if it's
getting loaded?  perl-status can be a big help when debugging.  It will
show @INC, too.  Make sure you kill the server and start -- don't just -HUP
or -USR1 it.

Maybe the <IfDefine> isn't working (add a statement that you know will
cause an error and try restarting the server).  And I suppose error_log
didn't give any hints either.

Don't run it as a Registry script.  It works fine as a handler -- I've had
too many weird problems with Registry scripts.
