Right. My opinion based on successfully installing literally thousands of
projects from source with little of no trouble…
I think I have the bulk of the mod_perl dependencies resolved, which is one
main reason for not wanting to start over again with the FastCGI route. And
to be honest, it wasn’t real clear what configure switches I needed to
provide to build a FastCGI file anyway. Where ever possible, I took the
I currently have RT made and installed
My problem could be with the apache config files. I was hoping someone in
this forum could help. I’m running apache 2.0, btw. From what I’ve read I
might have had more luck with RT if I was on 1.3 but the 2.0 decision had
already been made for other reasons.
So just to review, after following all of the instructions,. tips and so on
that I could find, when I try to start apache with either
PerlModule Apache::DBI or
PerlRequire /opt/rt3/bin/webmux.pl in httpd.conf
I get a can’t locate Apache/DBI.pm error message
The file exists in /usr/lib/perl5/… but whatever is looking for it can’t
find it. I’m guessing this is a very simple thing to fix if I just knew how
to help Apache find this needed file. That’s all I really need help with and
I’m guessing I will be very close to good to go once that’s solved.On Thursday 24 March 2005 08:44, William Harrison wrote:
Well, that’s your opinion. I’d say the procedure for getting it installed
on RHEL with mod_perl is about the same amount of work, having gone that
route and run into significant troubles, which led me to use FastCGI
- Both routes require resolving numerous dependecies in perl.
- Both require configuring, making, and installing RT.
- Both require edits to RT and Apache conf files.
- Both require creation of an RT group, disabling selinux, and installation
of MIME::Base64 (not in the make testdeps command).
The only additional thing the FastCGI method requires is downloading,
configuring, compiling and installing FastCGI - a total of maybe half a
dozen commands. How much work will be required specific to the mod_perl
version of the install hasn’t been determined yet.
Odds are good you can just install FastCGI and then reconfigure, remake,
and reinstall RT (assuming you have already solved all dependencies etc).
Otherwise you will likely have to download Apache source and recompile and
who knows what else…
As I said before, to the best of my knowledge no one is using RHEL 4 and RT
with mod_perl because no one has gotten it working, or if they have they
haven’t told anyone about it. A bunch who have tried have gotten to the
same point you are at currently and then switched to FastCGI out of sheer
If you do figure it out, be sure to post your solutions to the list and
help out others attempting your method of install.
