Package: php5-cgi
Version: 5.1.1-1
Severity: important


I upgraded php5-cgi on my server and this does not work anymore

We are using suExec via:
    # suexec config
    AddHandler cgi-script .php .php3 .php4 .php5

And we receive this message in error_log:
<p>This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-cgi-redirect enabled.
means that a page will only be served up if the REDIRECT_STATUS CGI
variable is
set, e.g. via an Apache Action directive.</p>
<p>For more information as to <i>why</i> this behaviour exists, see the

script headers: /home/igorb/www/test.php5

I tried to use different config directive such as Action but it does not
fix the problem.

Note that I'm upgrading from 5.0.5-3 to this current version.
