Finally a Masonite!

[ #2842 ]
I finally wrestled in Mason - what an effort that took. I'm admin'ing a cobalt system, so it's very hard (close to impossible & I gave up) to upgrade the Apache from 1.3.6 and with it, mod_perl 1.21. The latest Mason requires 1.21_01 (*roll*), so I dug around and found that mod_perl 1.21 was released July '99 (ahh, memories ;)) and I guessed that Mason 1.0 (which was released a year later) wouldn't require 1.21_01 - I guess I got lucky. Then it was digging through the old documentation to get it to work (the current documentation will not work).

So now I can toss PHP and do my server-parsed pages in Mason/Perl ... Whee!!


Update: Another thing - I had to manually move HTML::Mason stuff from /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 to /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.003. I guess mod_perl, which is statically built into Apache isn't picking up my new upgraded perl's @INC path.

      I'm not really worried about the warranty - I've prolly long since voided that sucker (gcc and perl upgrade). But I am worried about the "

        Is there any information on compiling Apache 2.0.28 beta with any of the recent iterations of mod_perl 2.0, or whether it will work with Apache 2.0 in multiprocessing or multithreaded mode or...?

        I've tried with the last couple of bleeding edge releases and have had no luck compiling it. When I ran

  • Mason doesn't require mod_perl 1.21_02. Certain specific features related to configuring Mason in your httpd.conf file will be more flexible if you have a newer mod_perl, that's it.
