      OK, it works now :-)

      On my redhat 9 system, I recompiled from rawhide latest source rpm, now
      I run with:
      $ rpm -q mod_perl httpd

      by using apache::compat, PerlOptions +GlobalRequest and cheating on the
      "use strict" it now works :-), i can authenticate through https to an
      ldap server through authcookieldap module .
      I know authcookie is about to be port to mod_perl 2 and apache 2, and I
      hope it will allowed me to run a cleaner configuration .
      for those of you interested, here's what I went through:


      PerlModule Apache2
      PerlModule Apache::AuthCookieLDAP
      PerlSetVar INTAuthPath /
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLoginScript /perl/login.pl
      PerlSetVar INTAuthSatisfy Any
      PerlSetVar INTAuthExpires +2h
      # These must be set
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_DN "dc=int-evry,dc=fr"
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_SecretKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/ca.key
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_User uid
      PerlSetVar INTAuthDBI_DSN "mysql:test"
      #PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_filter F=on
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_host ldapserver.int-evry.fr
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_EncryptionType "none"
      PerlSetVar INTAuthLDAP_SessionLifetime 00-24-00-00
      # Protected by AuthCookieLDAP.
      <Location /mci>
      PerlOptions +GlobalRequest
      PerlFixupHandler Apache::DB
      AuthType Apache::AuthCookieLDAP
      AuthName INTAuth
      PerlAuthenHandler Apache::AuthCookieLDAP->authenticate
      PerlAuthzHandler Apache::AuthCookieLDAP->authorize
      <Limit GET POST>
      require valid-user

      <Files LOGIN>
      #PerlOptions +GlobalRequest
      AuthType Apache::AuthCookieLDAP
      AuthName INTAuth
      SetHandler perl-script
      PerlHandler Apache::AuthCookieLDAP->login


      $ /etc/init.d/httpd restart
      Stopping httpd: [FAILED]
      Starting httpd: [Thu Jul 31 14:47:09 2003] [error] Bareword "OK" not allowed
      while "strict subs" in use at
      /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/AuthCookieLDAP.pm line 755.
      Bareword "FORBIDDEN" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at
      /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/AuthCookieLDAP.pm line 758.
      Compilation failed in require at (eval 4) line 3.

      so I commented out "use strict;" in
      /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/AuthCookieLDAP.pm , :-(

      Then accessing the /mci ldap protected directory in a navigator,
      generated the following http error.log

      [Thu Jul 31 14:49:38 2003] [error] [client] Global $r
      object is
      not available. Set:
      PerlOptions +GlobalRequest
      in httpd.conf at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/AuthCookie.pm
      line 216.

      So I added PerlOptions +GlobalRequest in httpd.conf as stated above !.

      thanks to all of you .

      PS: Authors of authcookie and authcookieldap, please let me know if you
      port your modules to apache 2 and mod_perl 2.
