I had several very helpful offline email conversations about the upgrade
from 7.1 to 7.2 and the Perl CGI failure. In particular, one person
suggested I load PTF SI54023
After doing that, Perl CGI was working again.
For future reference, here is the secret Apache configuration sauce:
ScriptAlias /perl/ /QOpenSys/perl/webwrap/
AddType application/x-httpd-perl .pl
Action application/x-httpd-perl /perl/apachedft
Alias /perl-bin /www/apachedft/htdocs/perl-bin
Use one alias for the wrapper (here, /perl/) and another alias for the
Perl scripts (here, /perl-bin) Put the wrapper shell script (here,
apachedft) in /QOpenSys/Perl/webwrap and put the Perl scripts in the
folder you want to serve them from.
I hope this helps someone in the future. It'll probably be me! :-)
