in reply to mod_perl PerlMapToStorageHandler

The error message from apache means it was looking for /var/www/test.txt, just what you wanted.

That it ultimately sent a 404 means it didn't find or couldn't access a file at /var/www/test.txt

To change that you either would have to put in a PerlResponseHandler too that generates a response or make sure that a file is accessible at /var/www/test.txt. Anonymous Monk already listed a few possibilities why it didn't work, another would be that apache doesn't have the rights to read /var/www/test.txt.

    Thanks, I should have included that information in the original post. I have added it.

    Any other thoughts are appreciated.

    One thing that's weird is when I strace Apache, I can't see it trying to open anything before returning the error.
