Ran into a problem, and found it mentioned in:

I just got this error, and having been paying close attention to what I've 
been changing it was an easy fix.  I noticed that the admin page was 
claiming I had mod_perl and tracked it down to being defined in the 
interchange.cfg.  I commented out this line.

That was the cause of the error, thinking "what would be empty in 
genconfig.html?"  I spotted this line right away: Environment variables 
passed [version extended=1 env=1]

Commenting this out lets me back into my admin page.

So now I have a question -- was it improper to comment out the environment 
directive in interchange.cfg?  Or is this perhaps something bug-like about 
the [version] tag?
