FastCGI: can't use undefined value as filehandle reference

Hi,
I’m playing with fastcgi, but I’m getting an internal server error.

Logs say:
Can’t use an undefined value as filehandle reference at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd/FCGI.pm line 75.
BEGIN failed–compilation aborted at /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/CGI/Fast.pm line 22.
BEGIN failed–compilation aborted at /usr/local/rt2/bin/mason_handler.fcgi line 86.
[Wed Oct 24 10:58:48 2001] [warn] FastCGI: server “/usr/local/rt2/bin/mason_handler.fcgi” (pid 91013) terminated by calling exit with status ‘255’
[Wed Oct 24 10:58:50 2001] [warn] FastCGI: server “/usr/local/rt2/bin/mason_handler.fcgi” restarted (pid 91014)

Apache directives:
AddHandler fastcgi-script .fcgi
FastCgiServer /usr/local/rt2/bin/mason_handler.fcgi

ScriptAlias /rttest/ /usr/local/rt2/bin/mason_handler.fcgi/

I’m not running a virtual host.

I think this may actually be a problem with FCGI.pm, as the following script:
#!/usr/bin/perl
use CGI::Fast;

gives the following error:
Can’t use an undefined value as filehandle reference at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd/FCGI.pm line 75.
BEGIN failed–compilation aborted at /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/CGI/Fast.pm line 22.
BEGIN failed–compilation aborted at test line 2.

I’m using FCGI-0.64, mod_fastcgi_2.2.10, apache_1.3.22, perl 5.005_03, FreeBSD 4.1-STABLE.
mod_fastcgi is compiled into apache.

Any ideas if I’m doing something wrong with the config, or do I have a screwed fcgi installation?

Cheers,
-Feargal.

That looks to me like it could be a perl version requirements. Does the
version of FCGI you’re using require a more recent perl?

Unfortunately no.
I didn’t really have the time to debug things, and since I have (had…) a
working RT, it was long fingered.
I did get one comment from someone on a fcgi list somewhere saying that the
FreeBSD ports version of the handler may be incompatible with the lasted
FCGI.pm, but I never got around to looking into it.

Double apologies, since I’m meant to be documenting RT in the first place :slight_smile:

Thanks for getting back to me Feargal.

I did bang my head against it until I got it fixed. Here’s what I changed in
FCGI.pm (starting at line 75):

# mkalastro@soe; added two lines below
open LISTEN_SOCK, "<&=0";
$self->{listen_sock} = \*LISTEN_SOCK;
# below croaked during compile: "Can't use an undefined value as filehandle

reference at FCGI.pm line 75"
#open $self->{listen_sock}, “<&=0”;
bless $self, “FCGI”;

Pretty simple and seemed to do the trick.

Thanks again,
