20 As near as I can tell from the logs, my problems started during a re-emerge
21 of
22 apache, not a new version (reasons unknown -- portage seems to be doing that
23 more than I'm used to). I've started to wonder if I didn't just screw up
24 the usual
25 config file stuff I do with dispatch-conf, not realizing zapping the new
26 would be
27 best. Anyway, I'm going to be exploring.
29 Do you have cgi working on apache2 (2.2.15), and if so, how things are
30 arranged?
32 I'll be trying to make a cgi out of a hello world in C, to see if my current
33 config
34 can CGI at all. If not, I'll be trying to back out config changes. What a
35 mess!
