Subject Apache::DBI 1.07 requires global $r
Date Sun, 13 Jul 2008 21:40:11 GMT
Just ran into this issue with Apache::DBI 1.07:

[Sun Jul 13 14:16:02 2008] [error] Global $r object is not available. Set:
         PerlOptions +GlobalRequest
in httpd.conf at /home/phred/dev/perl/lib/site_perl/5.8.8/Apache/ 
line 144.

Traced it from a bug report to:

and then

I see a couple issues with the patch that caused this, but I'm not sure 
what problem the patch was trying to solve.

I can offer up some tuits to release 1.08 and roll that patch back.  I'm 
not sure how many users are using global $r with mod_perl, but I would 
guess that the global request is a bigger issue than the problem which 
the patch was supposed to solve.
