RESOLVED -- RE: More info --- FW: Install questions

Thanks for your help, removing the Apache::DBI line out of httpd.conf got it
working. I’m now setting up the web stuff. Your gifts have been ordered!

That just doesn’t work.

Apache::Session::Store::DBI is VERY different from Apache::DBI. you
should undo that and then perl -MCPAN -e’install Apache::DBI’

If I move the contents of
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/Apache/Session/Store/ to
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/Apache I get this error in Apache’s
error_log. So that was a bad move on my part. Help! It seems as if the
module isn’t looking in the right place for things. I tried remaking
DBI-1.18, DBI-Datasource, and DBI-Searchbuilder…

[Sun Oct 21 02:26:31 2001] [error] Can’t locate object method "connect"
package “Apache::DBI::connect” at

Ian – Thanks for the tip. I installed RH 7.1 again (my 3rd time now) and
built Apache & mod_perl according to the RT Install docs.

Jesse –

Thanks for those RPMS, I installed them (I had to --force them), then
DBI, Apache:Cookie, and the MySQL part, and ‘make testdeps’ was happy.

I then continued the install, and modified httpd.conf. See below my new
problem. I can move into the path it’s looking for but I’m afraid
it’ll just complain about new problems. How would I go about fixing this

[root@support etc]# /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start
Syntax error on line 955 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:

(eval 3) line 3.

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started
[root@support etc]# locate

Here’s what I put in httpd.conf:

PerlModule Apache::DBI
PerlFreshRestart On
PerlRequire /usr/rt2/bin/

SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler RT::Mason

I also have RT Running on a 7.1 Stock install box.

Something that might help (it helped me) was to install only the
packages that you need, then downloading and building the rest. I
found too many quirks with the apache combo mod-Perl/Apache/MySql
that it was easier for me to --erase the rpm’s and build from


Hello –
New user here. A bunch of the modules failed to compile correctly. I
searched a few months back of archives and didn’t see anything all
that much related to isntalls so here I am…
Installing on a stock RedHat 7.1 box…
I’ll ask the easy question first, since now I’m having major problems
with Apache::Cookie… Is there a Linux distro that is confirmed to
have the least amount of problems? I’ve installed the apache and
mod_perl sources to no avail…
