Rt-3.0.4: Can't call method "handle_request"

Sadly, this doesn’t have anything to do with this thread:
http://lists.fsck.com/pipermail/rt-devel/2002-December/thread.html#2778

I’ve tried a number of things, but I’m stuck.

I’ve run webmux.pl from the command line, and it works fine. I’ve
done some startup debugging, and $ah is initialized and useable on
startup. However, when handling a request I get the following error
in the log:

[Thu Jul 17 12:51:19 2003] [error] Can’t call method
"handle_request" on an undefined value at
/usr/local/rt/bin/webmux.pl line 118.

What could be causing $ah to become undef between startup and the
request phase?

Just to follow up, I can reproduce the problem on the command line
too, after (temporarily) commenting out line 115.

perl -e’do “bin/webmux.pl”;RT::Mason->handler()’
[Thu Jul 17 19:40:27 2003] [crit]: Can’t call method "handle_request"
on an undefined value at bin/webmux.pl line 119.
(/usr/local/rt/lib/RT.pm:242)

So the problem wouldn’t be with mod_perl, would it?

Explicitly set PerlFreshRestart to Off, and forcefully rebuilt DBI, no

Ok, the problem was with a wack apache/mod_perl build. I don’t know
why it was whack, but I didn’t build it. Sorry for the alarms. :slight_smile:

You send your foot down to MIS with a 4000-page document explaining

perhaps mod_perl was built without all features enabled?
