Error starting apache Can't locate Apache/ in @INC

I have installed mod_perl 1.3 and Apache 1.39 on a CentOS 5 system in
order get Request Tracker running. When I attempt to start apache I get
the following error:

Syntax error on line 969 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Can’t
locate Apache/ in @INC

(@INC contains:





/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7



/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .


/usr/local/apache/lib/perl) at (eval 7) line 3.

I have located the file in the following directories:






I have tried copying the file to
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Apache directory.
Apache starts but it throws a lot of strange errors which makes me think
manually copying the file is not the correct way to resolve the error.

My httpd.conf file looks like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>


DocumentRoot /opt/rt3/share/html

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

this line applies to Apache2+mod_perl2 only

Below line might be incorrect, I had to use:

PerlModule Apache2::compat

mod_perl 2.0.1 from FC4 Linux

PerlModule Apache2 Apache::compat

PerlModule Apache::DBI

PerlRequire /opt/rt3/bin/

   SetHandler perl-script

   PerlHandler RT::Mason

Anyone know what might be the problem?
