Hi. in _initialize_mod_perl(), CGI::Simple is checking if $mod_perl::VERSION is >= 2.00. However, the *ACTUAL* version that the great rename into the Apache2 namespace happened was in the 2.0.0-RC5 release of mod_perl, which has $mod_perl::VERSION set to 1.999022. Because of this, CGI::Simple fails to work if run under mod_perl2 2.0.0-RC5. Yes I know this is an ancient release, but there was a version of RHEL that shipped with this (RHEL5 IIRC). The fix is simple: diff --git a/lib/CGI/ b/lib/CGI/ index 52d5198..ef71760 100644 --- a/lib/CGI/ +++ b/lib/CGI/ @@ -229,7 +229,7 @@ sub _initialize_mod_perl { if ( defined $mod_perl::VERSION ) { - if ( $mod_perl::VERSION >= 2.00 ) { + if ( $mod_perl::VERSION >= 1.999022 ) { $self->{'.mod_perl'} = 2; require Apache2::RequestRec; Thanks in advance. Regards, Michael Schout
