Subject Re: AuthCookieDBI and Apache 2.4
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2019 15:14:11 GMT
Apache2::AuthCookieDBI looks like it might work just fine with just that 
simple change. In theory you could grab the distribution, make the 
change and run the tests and get a pretty good idea if it will. You'll 
likely need to pay attention to MSCHOUT's documentation about what 
changed in 2.4 though, depending on which features of AuthCookieDBI 
you're using.
