Re: apache only servers text page

Sorry about that.

by remarking out the ForceType we are now able to view html file.

Apache is serving perl executables as actual code. ( .pl .cgi ) or files
that have the first line as


perl has been installed in correct location.

/etc/mime.types file has text/x-perl     .pl   and text/x-script.perl     pl

apache2.conf - has the line     Options FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
apache2.conf - AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .sh .pl

they may be other settings we are not aware of.

should it be needed, how should we go about getting a copy of the
apache2.conf file to you, or should we just post in up on a site and
give a link to it ?

please advise.

thank you

a web site and include the link rather than the actual image in your email.

text/html - is used in all scripts, and it is located in the mime.types

we use sublime to edit all of our .pl or .html pages.

please advise.

Did you restart apache after making the change?

Did you grep the Apache configuration directory for other instances of
