Description Jay Emerson 2003-03-10 03:35:59 UTC
Description of problem:
    After installing the Perl module HTML::Mason and configuring the Apache
configuration file as described in the Mason documentation and on the Mason web
site (http://www., Apache fails to start, issuing the following error.

# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]

    The Mason FAQ suggests removing the mod_perl included with Red Hat Linux and
compiling mod_perl from source.

    (Quoted from
>Also, if you are running RedHat Linux, do not use the mod_perl RPMs that ship
>with RedHat. They are not reliable (as of RedHat 6.2). 
    I honestly don't know who is right or wrong here but I have been a loyal Red
Hat user/sysadmin since 4.2. What ever the problem is, I need to use Mason and
would like to use Red Hat. Can this issue please be solved?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Attempted serval times on both SMP and single CPU systems. Reporduced every
time. 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install HTML::Mason from CPAN
2. Configure Apache to use Mason
3. Restart Apache
Actual results:
Apache failed to start.

Expected results:
A working Apache with mod_perl and HTML::Mason.

Comment 1 Gary Benson 2003-03-10 09:51:36 UTC
"Until some time after mod_perl 2.0 is officially released, Mason will only
support mod_perl 1.x, specifically 1.22+.

You may be able to use Mason with mod_perl 2.0 if you turn on mod_perl 2.0's 1.x
compatibility layer by loading ``Apache::compat'' before you load Mason."
