Description damian 1999-04-17 10:39:48 UTC
I am using RH 5.9.7

mod_perl should include PERL_STACKED_HANDLERS, because
Apache::DBI uses it and that is a common combination.

The change is something like this:

perl Makefile.PL \
        USE_APXS=1 \
        WITH_APXS=/usr/sbin/apxs \
        EVERYTHING = 1

Comment 1 damian 1999-04-18 11:34:59 UTC
while building my own rpm I found that PERL_STACKED_HANDLERS is
disabled by redhat in the mod_perl-1.16-rh.patch

Changelog says:
* Thu Sep 03 1998 Preston Brown <>
- disabled stacked_handlers.  They still seem busted!

is this still true ?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-08-27 17:04:59 UTC
This was off for a long time because STACKED_HANDLERS had problems
when mod_perl was run as a DSO.  These problems seem to have been
corrected, so STACKED_HANDLERS will be enabled in mod_perl for the
next release.
