Subject Installing embperl on Windows 2000
Date Thu, 16 Nov 2006 17:07:29 GMT
Hello all,

We recently inherited a website from a developer who was terminated. The
site works great but the hardware is failing and we have to to migrate it to
another server. The problem we are currently having is that we can't get
embperl to work properly. We have followed all the instructions on
installing it to the letter however we receive errors when trying to run the
Apache 2.2 service on a Windows 2000 machine. The error we receive when
trying to run Apache is:

 *The Apache service named  reported the following error:*

*>>> httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 133 of D:/Apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf:
Can't locate API module structure `embperl_module' in file
D:/Perl/site/lib/auto/Embperl/Embperl.dll: No error     . *

We receive this error even though the file exists in the proper location. We
have loaded mod_perl 2.2.2. I have setup d:\perl\bin as an environment

PerlModule Embperl
 Alias /embperl/ "D:/Perl/site/lib/"
   <Location /embperl>
     SetHandler perl-script
     PerlHandler HTML::Embperl
     Options ExecCGI

If we comment out the code from the PerlModule line on, it still give us the
same error when starting Apache.

Can you provide any insight on what causes this error? To assist in the
diagnosis of our problem, we have included the .conf file as well. Any
assistance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.
