Perl Modules - Mod_Perl and CGIby Trihedralguy (Pilgrim)
|on Apr 29, 2013 at 00:59 UTC||Need Help??|
Trihedralguy has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
For a long time, I've put up with either Mod_Perl or some sort of Apache2::Reload problem. It seems that I cannot get the configuration correct. I seriously need some wisdom.
My problem is that if I change a perl module, I get "Internal Server" errors on the screen and in the error log I get things like:maybe use strict error: Subroutine new redefined at Item.pm line 13
Refreshing the page a few times and eventually the "cache" clears. Most of the time refreshing very quickly gives me this:Attempt to reload Item.pm aborted. <--> Compilation failed in require at (eval 109) line 3
I am using Mod_Perl and CGI together -- I've also attempted to use Apache2::Reload which claims to "Fix" this problem. In my httpd.conf file I have these, like the module suggests:
In a development situation I want my perl modules to be checked and recomplied the moment I make a new change, I dont really care about performance when I'm constantly making changes and getting the code layed down.
Anyway -- I hope someone out there has a proper answer for this. I love developing in Perl/CGI, its gotten me some awesome results. But moving to PM files and OO is becoming a struggle when my Perl modules are constantly acting up. Any suggestions are extremely welcome.
