use Apache2::Response ();

This should add the method to $r (a lot of the Apache2:: modules do this - Apache2::RequestUtil, Apache2::Upload etc)

I've tried it with "use Apache2::RequestRec;" at the top of my handler and without it. The outcome is the same in both cases. If I attempt to install it from CPAN, it says that it is already installed.

Have you loaded Apache2::RequestRec?

Betreff: Custom response problem


I recently upgraded my workstation from Debian 6 to Debian 7 and I'm now encountering a problem that I haven't seen before. My apache version is 2.2.22-13+deb7u1. My mod_perl version is 2.0.7-3. I'm guessing that I have an installation problem of some kind but I'm not sure where to look for problems. My application works correctly until I attempt to define a custom response, as follows,


sub handler {

            my $apache = shift; 

            $apache->custom_response(Apache2::Const::HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR, 'hi mom');

            return Apache2::Const::HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR;



I see a 500 error, which is what I want, when I access the page. However the error page is the default apache 500 error response page and I want to override it. When I look in the logs, I see this:


[Tue Mar 18 15:41:32 2014] [error] [client] Can't locate object method "custom_response" via package "Apache2::RequestRec" at /usr/local/lariat-trunk/qa-trunk/lib/Lariat/V4/WS/RS/ line 41.


This would imply, at least to me, that this method is not compiled into mod_perl or perhaps into apache itself but I cannot be sure. Any suggestions?
