This is a great comment.

I spent quite a little while trying to determine why I was unable to get CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication to work correctly with my CGI app; I'd fill in the login form, click the button, but no joy. Click again. Then again. Then, on the fourth try, the login would go through. But sometimes it took 5 clicks. Sometimes only 3. Drove me batty, until I realized that the web server was cacheing the result of cgi scripts... set at 10 seconds. Firefox wouldn't submit the login form's data to the script until 10 seconds had passed since the time the login form appeared in the browser.

I control the Apache config file on my server, and fixing the problem on the server side was easier for me. It was a matter of removing this line:

ExpiresDefault "access plus 10 seconds""

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
