Re: Debian-Installer: Webserver, Apache, mod_cgi, partial solution.
Instead of installing Apache (version-1) I could have
cgi.load -> /etc/apache2/mods-available/cgi.load
It may nice if mod_cgi was enable by default by Sarge
installer (rc1). Perl and php are enabled by default,
but as cgi is not these module do not work.
