This isn't about php at all. I know that mod_php will never run as suexec and I'm not trying to do so either. Neither am I trying to get php to run under suexec as CGI.
This is about Perl scripts only.

It don't output the line above. But everything seems to be right.
Apache tells me suexec is there and that it is properly configured to. The suEXEC log-line is not comming but still it's loaded in some way.
What I would like to know is if any of you can point out anything in the configuration I posted earlier that could possibly lead to problems.

Could the way Apache handles CGI-scripts be the problem? It's not determined by extension, it simply tries to execute everything in the cgi-bin directory.
