Which Cookie module for mod_perl 1.99?by matija (Priest)
|on Aug 02, 2006 at 18:13 UTC||Need Help??|
matija has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am writing an application for a client who is hosting it with a third party. The third party is willing to install Perl modules for me, but not willing to change their mod_perl instalation, which is mod_perl 1.99 under apache 2.0.(something).
I have attempted to duplicate the clients setup on my server, but I made a crucial mistake: while I was using mod_perl 1.x, it wasn't 1.99.
Therefore I used Apache::Cookie for my cookie handling.
Now the hosting guy tells me Apache::Cookie doesn't support mod_perl 1.99. I checked, and he is right: the Makefile contains a check that rejects mod_perl 1.99.
What Cookie module should I use? I don't want to use CGI, because I'm getting my parameters via POST and I have seen bad behaviour when missing Apache requests and CGI (when doing POST, GET is OK).
So am I dead? What module can I use in order to get cookies working under mod_perl 1.99?
