      Spencer at globalservers.com has recompiled mod_per and apache using perl
      5.8. See message below.

      We have perl 5.8.0 installed at /usr/bin.

      We have perl 5.8.3 installed at /usr/local/bin

      I have done a /usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell
      cpan> install Bundle::Apache::ASP

      and a /usr/local/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell
      cpan> install Bundle::Apache::ASP

      When I put these lines into the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file:
      PerlModule Apache::ASP
      <Files ~ (\.asp)>
      SetHandler perl-script
      PerlHandler Apache::ASP
      PerlSetVar Global /home/webadmin/ptoc.org/register
      PerlSetVar StateDir /tmp/asp
      PerlSetVar UseStrict 0
      PerlSetVar Debug 3
      </Files>

      The Apache web server will not restart and gives no errors in error_log.

      When I comment out these lines and put them in the
      /home/webadmin/ptoc.org/register/.htaccess file. I get the following error
      when I run my test.asp (Hello World) asp.

      [Wed Jan 28 11:24:58 2004] [alert] [client 207.43.195.204]
      /home/webadmin/ptoc.org/register/.htaccess: Can't locate Digest/MD5.pm in

      /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/Apache/ASP.pm line 13.
      Compilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 3.

      We don't understand why it's showing perl 5.6 in the error message and of
      course it doesn't work.

      With the lines commented out here's the error_log entry from a good restart:
      [Wed Jan 28 11:23:46 2004] [notice] Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) (Red-Hat/Linux)
      PHP/4.1.2 mod_perl/1.26 configured -- resuming normal operations

      Any help would be appreciated.

        Hi Steve,

        your Perl configuration is a little bit confusing..
        Why did you (they) install perl 5.8.0 and perl 5.8.3 at different locations?

        What version does "perl -V" give and what @INC does it indicate?

        What i would do is delete all the different Perl installations - manually -
        that means, remove all the different Perl interpreters and remove everything
        under /usr/lib/perlx and /usr/local/lib/perlx and install
        perl again with the prefix /usr or /usr/local.

        I think, this would not take as much time as repairing around this strange
        installation.
        Of course you have to reinstall all the necessary non-standard modules
        again.

        Helmut

          You can view the output from perl -V at http://ptoc.org/register/perl-V.txt It shows perl 5.8.3 because /usr/local/bin shows up first in the PATH.

          When I subscribed to web hosting at globalservers.com it came with /usr/bin/perl 5.6.0

          After some recomendations from this mail group I did the following to upgrade perl
          perl -MCPAN -e shell
          cpan> install CPAN
          cpan> install Bundle::Apache::ASP

          Which installed perl 5.8.3 into the /usr/local/bin directory by default. I thought it would do an upgrade from perl 5.6.0 to 5.8.3. I ended up with two versions of perl.

          After much trouble, Spencer at globalservers.com installed perl 5.8.0 into /usr/bin. I'm not sure how to get rid of this mess and start over with one version of perl 5.8.3. If we get to one version of perl, then mod_perl and apache will no doubt have to be recompiled.

          It seems that no matter what Spencer does I still get perl 5.6.0 showing up in my ASP error_log and Apache will not restart with ASP stuff in the httpd.conf file.

          It looks like your mod_perl is still compiled to the 5.6.0. I would suggest that you have them give you a fresh server install. Then use the RPMs to upgrade

            It looks like your mod_perl is still compiled to the 5.6.0. I would
            suggest that you have them give you a fresh server install. Then use
            the RPMs to upgrade to 5.6.1 (it looks like they are using RedHat 7.2)
            https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-256.html#Red%20Hat%20Linux%207.2

            Now, when you try to install your modules with CPAN, it may try to
            install Perl 5.8 in order to resolve dependancies. Tell it 'no' when it
            asks you if you want to do this. This usually happens when a module
            becomes integrated into the default perl install in a more recent
            version. You may have to manually force it to install the older version
            of the module before it became integrated.

              Spencer,
              Would you consider doing the recomendation listed below from a member of the asp mail list? With a fresh install we'll try to make sure we end up with only one perl installed. It needs to be nothing less than perl 5.6.1. If you would do the upgrade using RPM, then I will try to make sure I answer the question correctly to not install another version of perl. I'll only install Apache ASP.

              I will grab a copy of our static pages under html so I can replace them.

              I believe this link also listed below is import to our sucess: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-256.html#Red%20Hat%20Linux%207.2

              Another email will follow in a few minutes that I believe is also important to our sucess.

                We have completed everything we know to do and still Apache ASP will not
                work. Surely there's a way to run Apache ASP on this server.

                Spencer has completely reinstalled my virtual server with perl 5.6.1. See
                below.

                Perl -v shows version 5.6.1. This is the only perl on the server.

                I did perl -MCPAN -e shell
                Cpan> install Bundle::Apache::ASP

                It did not go well. See the dialog at
                http://ptoc.org/register/asp_install.txt

                I went ahead and put the lines into httpd.conf and restarted Apache. It
                would not restart. And no message in error_log

                Does anyone have a suggestion?

                  Thanks Warren. I tried this and it failed. Then I woke up. Spencer forgot to install gcc with the new virtual server. Spencer, would you please install gcc

                    Thanks Warren.

                    I tried this and it failed.

                    Then I woke up. Spencer forgot to install gcc with the new virtual server.

                    Spencer, would you please install "gcc" for me?
