Bug#403134: apache2: does not work with CGI, PHP, Perl, mySQL, etc.

Subject: apache2: does not work with CGI, PHP, Perl, mySQL, etc.
Package: apache2
Version: 2.0.55-4
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

*** Please type your report below this line ***

I tested apache2 and the 3 apache1 versions on both KNOPPIX-5.02-CD and
my working machine with Debian testing.  None worked with CGI, PHP,
Perl, mySQL, phpmyadmin, and many other things.  Apache2 was the worst
by denying even access to http://localhost.  Changing the configuration
did not heall the system.

I could correct the whole mess by using XAMPP of
http://www.apachefriends.org/.  This is a combination of working
versions of Apache2, PHP, mySQL, and ftp such that the CGI, PHP , Perl,
and phpmyadmin really work.  I tested XAMPP both on KNOPPIX (with
permanent saving) and Debian testing - with full success.  After the
former torture with the Debian Apache* I am really happy to have found
this free software product.

I propose that you either change towards XAMPP or at least try to learn
from these guys.  The actual trash of Debian's Apache and related
software is not usable.
