Doesn't work with Apache 2

Hello,

Today I tried to install RT2 with apache2 and mod_perl 2.0. This did not
work well. The instructions for modifying httpd.conf were wrong (mod_perl
2.0 does not include Apache::DBI, prefering instead to use a newer and
better system). Furthermore, even after I adjusted that, there were still
clashes and problems. Has anyone managed to get this working?

So where exactly did you get mod_perl 2.0? It does not exist.

If you’re gonna use pre-released software, you should at least have a
grasp of how to debug things.

What you need to do is back down to mod_perl 1.x, and then everything
should work fine.

should work fine.

According to documentation and actual experience, mod_perl 1.x is
incompatible with Apache 2.

Which says “mod_perl 2.0 (in development): Version 1.99_04 - June 22, 2002”

the key phrase being “in development”. And the version is 1.99_04,
not 2.0.

Yes. This is correct. To use mod_perl, you cannot currently use
apache2. It is really only suited for developers. Also, lots of
modules are not yet ported to work with mod_perl, as you’ve
discovered.
