Subject Problem with mod_perl and DBI/DBD::Oracle LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not being recognized?
Date Mon, 21 Oct 2013 17:57:20 GMT
We've set a Directory directive for some perl scripts, setting a mod_perl handler:

Alias /card_access /home/allwebfiles/perl/catcard

 <Directory /home/allwebfiles/perl/catcard>
     SetHandler perl-script
     PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
     PerlOptions +ParseHeaders
     Options +ExecCGI
     PerlSetEnv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64/lib
     PerlSetEnv ORACLE_HOME /usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64

The %ENV variable is there, if I print the %ENV values:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH --> /usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64/lib
MOD_PERL --> mod_perl/2.0.4
ORACLE_HOME --> /usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64
PATH --> /sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin

But trying to initialize a DBI database connection results in the following error:

[Mon Oct 21 10:10:37 2013] [error] install_driver(Oracle) failed: Can't load '/usr/local/lib64/perl5/auto/DBD/Oracle/'
for module DBD::Oracle: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
at /usr/lib64/perl5/ line 200.\n at (eval 11) line 3\nCompilation failed in require
at (eval 11) line 3.\nPerhaps a required shared library or dll isn't installed where expected\n
at /home/allwebfiles/perl/catcard/ line 9\n

Which is precisely the error you get when LD_LIBRARY_PATH is unset or incorrect. is where it's supposed to be.

The path is correct, the script works fine on the command line, and if I comment out the handler
directives in the perl.conf script, put in a ScriptAlias and process the script as a normal
CGI script, it also works.

I'm confident the issue doesn't have anything to do with DBI or DBD::Oracle.

It ONLY fails when the script is executed as a mod_perl handler. 

The script itself is very simple; all I do is create a database handle and if no error is
thrown, print 'It works'.

use DBI;
use strict;

my $login="xxxxxx";
my $dbpass='xxxxxxxx';
my $dbname=";sid=xxx";
my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:$dbname", $login, $dbpass, {RaiseError =>1});

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "It Works";

(and this is just a test , any script using DBI fails with this error.)

What am I missing?
