Subject mod_perl and RedHat 6
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 13:34:16 GMT
I'm trying to migrate a server to a new machine running 64-bit RedHat 6.  The 
stock RedHat setup is apache 2.2.15, php 5.3.3 and perl 5.10.1.  Normally I 
build the latest Apache 2.2 and Perl/mod_perl in /usr/local and just use that.  
However, this server will also use Drupal so I figured I'd build PHP locally 
as well.

I'm unable to get PHP 5.3 or 5.4 to link properly with the installed mysql, 
pcre and gd libraries (all of which are installed along with the devel 
packages), so I was thinking of just using the stock Apache and PHP and trying 
to build a newer mod_perl with the /usr/local/bin/perl which is 5.14.2.  So I 
/usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL MP_APXS=/usr/sbin/apxs

This compiles, but make test gives me this:

Test Summary Report
t/api/server_const.t                  (Wstat: 0 Tests: 6 Failed: 2)
  Failed tests:  5-6
Files=242, Tests=2614, 122 wallclock secs ( 1.30 usr  0.41 sys + 91.90 cusr 
10.94 csys = 104.55 CPU)
Result: FAIL
Failed 1/242 test programs. 2/2614 subtests failed.

I'm not sure how serious this failure is and whether I should consider 
installing the resulting file instead of the stock one.  I can 
always just use the stock Perl/mod_perl but I'd really prefer a newer Perl.

Alternatively, I suppose I can try and set up a reverse proxy to run the 
Drupal stuff on the stock Apache and mod_perl stuff on the custom 
Apache/mod_perl, but I expect I'll run into complications there with various 
virtual hosts and such.

Any suggestions?
