( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Greetings fellow monks,

I have a slightly interesting but extremely annoying problem: I've recently built a fairly complex Web application service for a gigantic Redmond, Washington based software company (refered to hereafter as GRWBSC). I've used various open source technologies for this service including Perl (of course), Apache, Linux, and MySQL. Upon completion, the client from GRWBSC was extremely pleased with the service.

The problem started when said client from GRWBSC had her boss look at said Web service. This boss used netcraft.com to figure out our technology choices. This boss then became extremely upset. I must now recode the entire service using GRWBSC-only technology. I'd rather not.

I figure that netcraft.com is using the "Server" line from an HTTP header to determine the server software I'm using. So my thought is: perhaps I just muck aroung with the HTTP header and call it good.

my $cgi = new CGI; print $cgi->header( -server => 'Microsoft-IIS/6.0', -server_software => 'Microsoft-IIS/6.0', -cache_control => 'private', -content_length => '31000' );

OK, this seems to work for "Server-software", but not for the actual "Server" line. It apparently gets overridden by Apache. Anyone have any suggestions for me? I'd be really annoyed if I had to recode this whole thing (2 months worth of work) in ASP, MSSQL, etc. Thanks.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
