Subject [mp2] 'Can't Load...' PerlRequire error for Apache2.2
Date Thu, 25 May 2006 08:51:33 GMT
Hi all... I'm hoping you can help me with a problem I have configuring


I'm completely new to Apache & Perl and am attempting to use them on an
office XP SP2 machine so I can load the ASP.Net module and try that out.
I'm mainly a VB, HTML & CSS person, so I'm in foreign territory with all
this server-side stuff! I'm trying to load the Perl module because I
believe it's a requirement for the ASP.Net module.


I've been following the "Configuring mod_perl 2.0 for Win32"
instructions at So
far I have installed Apache2.2 and ActivePerl (latest) along with the
Perl5.8 module.


I have amended my conf file as follows:


LoadFile "C:/Perl/bin/perl58.dll"

LoadModule perl_module modules/

PerlRequire "C:/Program Files/Apache Software


The problem I am getting is this error when I try to restart the server:


[Thu May 25 09:20:56 2006] [error] Can't load Perl file: C:/Program
Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/ for server, exiting...


So the problem seems to be with the PerlRequire line in the conf file -
when I comment this out the server starts with no errors.


Apache is installed here: C:/Program Files/Apache Software

Perl is installed here: C:/Perl

My Perl module is indeed called:

The script is located at: C:/Program Files/Apache Software

...and contains:



use ModPerl::Util ();

use Apache2::RequestRec ();

use Apache2::RequestIO ();

use Apache2::RequestUtil ();

use Apache2::ServerRec ();

use Apache2::ServerUtil ();

use Apache2::Connection ();

use Apache2::Log ();

use Apache2::Const -compile => ':common';

use APR::Const -compile => ':common';

use APR::Table ();

use Apache2::compat ();

use ModPerl::Registry ();

use CGI ();




Can anyone please offer me a solution to the error message I am
receiving or any advise as to how I should progress?
