mod_perl config problem with apache ?
Posted by mark (mark), 7 January 2004Hey all,
This should be a simple thing, and I hope its not ... perhaps something very simple and silly is going wrong, but I've exhausted as much as I know.
I installed executables of apache and perl. Then I used PPM to get and install mod_perl
when I run my test program http://localhost/perl/mp_test1.pl
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
I get "Internal Server Error", so in my apache error.log file I look and find
"[error] failed to resolve handler 'Modperl::Registry'"
"[error] Can't locate ModPerl/Registry.pm in @INC (@INC Contains: C:/Perl/site/lib/Apache2/ModPerl C:/Perl/site/win32 C:/Perl/site/win32API
C:/Perl/lib c:/perl/site/lib . c:/apache2 c:/apache2/lib/perl) at (eval 1) line 3.0"
in httpd.conf I have currently added
Alias /perl /Apache2/perl
The 3 lines of 'PerlSwitches' are intended to add the the @INC which seemed not to be looking in the correct place for ModPerl::Registry. I had searched the whole of my C: drive and all three locations of Registry are included in the @INC (as shown by the error.log above)
Can someone suggest what I could try to fix this problem ?

Maybe you've sorted this by now, but here goes
According to my book, you need something like.
There's so many options for mod_perl, and of course theres mod_perl1 and mod_perl2 now, the combinations are bewildering.
Posted by mark (mark), 19 February 2004Cheers for the response. I actually tried a complete re-install after finding some advice on google and followed the instructions in the follwing link http://savage.net.au/Perl/html/upgrade-perl-apache.html
As far as the google poster was concerned, I had made some error in my install and should start again.
I did and it worked !! (yay!)
One point .in your post you suggest ...
> ... Apache::Registry ...
I think is suitable for apache 1.*, but apache 2.* should use
... ModPerl::Registry ...
I'm by no means an apache/perl/modperl expert, but this has worked for me.
cheers for your suggestions
