Subject RE: I see only the text of the script rather than whatever the script is supposed to produce
Date Tue, 23 Dec 2003 20:37:20 GMT
Hi Randy,


This is the perl-5.8/Apache-2 distribution.

I will therefore change "<Location /perl>" to:
PerlModule ModPerl::Registry
<Location /perl>
      SetHandler perl-script
      PerlHandler ModPerl::Registry
      Options +ExecCGI
      PerlSendHeader On
      allow from all

I had used "Apache::Registry" because that is what I saw in the
documentation, so someone probably wants to ensure that the documentation is
updated WRT this.

The "the sample mod_perl registry, hello-world handler, and Apache::ASP"
don't work.  When I try to go to them, I get an error message saying they
can't be found (though the registy handler gives a configuration error
instead).  But, I am puzzled as to why http://localhost/perl-status works
(or seems to).

I wonder if the problem might lie in the following:

<IfModule mod_perl.c>
    Include conf/perl.conf

I start Apache using "Apache2\bin\apache -DSSL -k start", and I am wondering
if the reason it isn't working is that Apache isn't processing perl.conf
when it is started.  If this is true, how would I change the command I use
to start Apache (or can I safely get rid of the IfModule lines above and
below it).

I also wonder if the "AddLanguage pl .po" might be causing some problems
(and if so, can I safely remove it).

Thanks again,

Assuming this is the Perl/Apache binary distribution from, and just to verify that that the
installation and configuration went OK, do the sample
mod_perl registry, hello-world handler, and Apache::ASP
scripts work OK? The settings are found in the installed
original Apache configuration files.

Is this the perl-5.8/Apache-2 distribution, or the
perl-5.6/Apache-1? If it's for Apache-2, then
Apache::Registry has been replace by ModPerl::Registry.

You shouldn't have to move files around like that, and
actually, probably shouldn't, as other things may rely on
them. Try moving it back, and if this is for Apache-2, use
ModPerl::Registry, rather than Apache::Registry. You may
also have to "use" the Apache2 module, either in a startup
script or with a PerlModule directive, in order to adjust
@INC to be able to find some things.
