Mac OS X server and RT

A while ago I asked about installing the latest version of RT on Mac
OS X Server. The new version of the Mac OS, Tiger, has come out, but I
don’t have the server version yet. (I do have the regular version that
is installed on my laptop).

The previous problems were the version of perl, which is now 5.8.6 on
Tiger, up from 5.8.1, and behavior of the Apache server. I have no
idea how to test anything about that, because I never really got
beyond checking out having a second perl instance, before I realized
that Tiger would be out before I got it set up.

Mmy copy of Tiger server is on order and I still am waiting for
it. Is anyone running RT on a Mac OS X server using
the system installed perl and Apache server? This would have to have
been done in the last week or two.

I’m running RT 2 on OS X 10.2 that’s using a different version of perl
(5.8.0) installed in a different location than the stock perl. I’m
doing the same thing for my test RT 3 box (OS X 10.3, perl 5.8.5)
without any issues. I haven’t tried running RT on Tiger, but there
shouldn’t be any problems.

I assume that the Apple installed perl 5.8.6 will simply be perl
5.8.6. Did you have any other problems. When I asked before, Jesse
posted a note about Apples implementation of Apache leaving something
to be desired.

I’ve always compiled my own version of Apache from the latest stable
version on Apache’s website.

I got RT 3.4.x working on OSX 10.4.1 a week or so ago, and everything
seems to work just fine.

The system Perl seems to be stock 5.8.6; if you want, I can post the
output of perl -V for build details, but in any case it worked fine.

Apache is 1.3.33; the $ENV{SERVER_SOFTWARE} on mine gives

 Apache/1.3.33 (Darwin) PHP/4.3.11 mod_perl/1.29 mod_ssl/2.8.22 

OpenSSL/0.9.7b

All of these components are stock; all of them appear to work fine.

(Compare to OSX 10.3, where the stock mod_perl didn’t correctly bind
output to the web server, so pages would “work” but would send no output
back to clients unless you configured mod_perl to do so with a –

 tie *STDOUT, 'Apache';

– in httpd.conf or startup.pl. This isn’t a problem in 10.4.)

So, RT and its prerequisites all seem to build, install, and run just
fine on OSX 10.4.x client, and so also should on 10.4.x server.
