Description Frédéric Buclin 2015-07-31 02:17:35 CEST
The mod_perl 2.0.9 documentation mentions that:

  http://search.cpan.org/~shay/mod_perl-2.0.9/Changes

  "Add support for Apache httpd-2.4.x."


Testing mod_perl with Bugzilla indeed shows that 2.0.8 and older do not work with Apache 2.4.x. But Mageia 5 released Apache 2.4.10 and mod_perl 2.0.7-17.20130221svn... i.e a snapshot which looks like to be 2.5 years old. It really needs to be updated to be usable.
Comment 1 David Walser 2015-07-31 16:42:45 CEST
This was discussed on IRC when 2.0.9 was released.  I was told that 2.0.9 still doesn't support perl 5.22, which is what we have in Cauldron.  It may have been that it doesn't support perl 5.20 either (Mageia 5), but I can't remember for sure.
Comment 2 Frédéric Buclin 2015-07-31 17:14:30 CEST
Perl 5.20 is supported, per their changelog.
Comment 3 Frédéric Buclin 2016-10-02 17:48:21 CEST
mod_perl 2.0.10 RC1 is just around the corner:

https://github.com/apache/mod_perl/commit/c9bd1e45

Its changelog mentions support for perl 5.22:

2.0.10-rc1

Automatically select the appropriate c89 option when modperl is being
built with either gcc 5 or clang.

Fix non-threaded Perl 5.22.x build and tests.

Add support for Perl 5.22.x.
