httpd: module "mod_perl.c" is not compatible with this version of Apache


My webserver has been upgraded from RH8 to fedora core 2, and after this no cgi-bin script is working... When I try to use perl.conf and start httpd I get the following error:

[root@dole conf.d]# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Starting httpd: httpd: module "mod_perl.c" is not compatible with this version of Apache (found 20020628, need 20020903).
Please contact the vendor for the correct version.

Any ideas?
Is there any options I need to add to httpd.conf or perl.conf?

Version off some essential product I use:

root@dole conf.d]# rpm -q httpd
[root@dole conf.d]# rpm -q perl
[root@dole conf.d]# rpm -q mod_perl
package mod_perl is not installed (???)

-Shouldn't mod_perl be installed if this is just an upgrade???

Either upgrade mod_perl or just comment it out in your config so it doesn't attempt to load it. If your really unsure what it is, disable it and move on.... your most likely not using it then on your webserver and it was just loading cause it was precompiled with your previous version.

I have now installed mod_perl....

When I try to execute test.cgi from my webserver, I get this error:

"You don't have permission to access /test.cgi on this server"

I have checked that everyone permision is set to r+x, but still this error.

How should httpd.conf and perl.conf be configured to get this to work
