in reply to Apache Registry with Server Side Includes

If you use <!--#inculde virtual="..." --> instead of file="...", mod_include does an internal request, which executes CGI scripts in the same way as if they were called externally.

Is that what you want? If not, please be more specific, and show some code (relevant apache config, scripts, includes, ...) and desired and actual output.

    Moritz - Thank you. Your answer solved the problem. Scripts called using "#include virtual" are registry-ized.

    FWIW, was using:

    <!--#exec cmd="script arg1=x arg2=y"-->
    The doc clearly indicates using "virtual" over "exec" (and gives the added benefit passing in params the CGI way.)
      Hello Monks,

      Although the problem of getting a SSI-invoked script into Apache Registry was "solved", it seems that the scripts in my (and maybe your?) Apache Registry directory take on a behavior that is, in my case, undesired. Specifically, calling the same script several times within a SSI-parsed file causes each invocation of the script to use the same argument as was passed in from the first invocation.

      To clarify, please find inlined below a simple SSI/shtml file and a script:

      <!-- file test.shtml --> <html> <head></head> <body> <!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/test.cgi?count=5"--> <!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/test.cgi?count=10"--> <!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/test.cgi?count=30"--> </body> <html> #!/usr/bin/perl -w # test.cgi use strict; use CGI qw(-compile :all); my $count = param('count'); my $a = 0; print header; while ( $a < $count) { print ++$a; }

      When run from the default /var/www/cgi-bin/ directory, execution works as expected. However, when run from the Apache Registry directory below, each invocation counts only to 5.

      <Directory /var/www/registry> SetHandler perl-script PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry # PerlOptions +ParseHeaders (prevented 2+ invocations) Options +ExecCGI </Directory>

      Any insights would sure be appreciated... Thanks!

        Try using CGI::Simple instead of (at least for testing purposes).   I've occasionally seen similar weirdness with (i.e. parameters not being cleared/reread upon subsequent requests) when being used in persistent contexts, and switching to CGI::Simple fixed it.

        Any insights would sure be appreciated... Thanks!
