Using HTML::Mason with a local install

zigdon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm sure I'm missing something trivial, but a quick Super Search didn't show me what. I'm trying to get HTML::Mason working from a non-root install. I've got a server with mod_perl set up, and I did manage to get all the required modules installed in /my/home/dir/lib/modules. Now, I'm trying to get apache to actually send mason requests to a certain directory. I created this .htaccess file:
PerlSetEnv PERL5LIB /my/home/dir/lib/modules PerlModule HTML::Mason::ApacheHandler <FilesMatch "\.(html|mas)$"> SetHandler perl-script PerlSetVar MasonDataDir /my/home/dir/lib/mason PerlHandler HTML::Mason::ApacheHandler </FilesMatch>
But when I hit the server to this location, I get this error:
[Thu Jul 8 14:08:03 2004] [alert] [client] /my/home/di +r/www/mason/.htaccess: Can't locate /my/home/dir/lib/modules/HTML/Mas +on/ApacheHandler in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.3/i +386-freebsd /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.3 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl +/5.8.3/i386-freebsd /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3 /usr/local/l +ib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-freebsd /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/ +5.8.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_ +perl/5.005 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl . /usr/pair/apache/ /usr/pa +ir/apache/lib/perl) at (eval 43) line 1.
Notice that /my/home/dir/lib/modules doesn't show up in @INC. So what am I doing wrong here? Is there another way of modifying @INC from within .htaccess? Any hints welcome!

    I might be overlooking something, but it seems your perl code is looking for "/my/home/dir/lib/modules/HTML/Mason/" in @INC, while it should be looking for "HTML/Mason/".

    Your .htaccess file looks right to me, but the again, it's been cencored, so who knows. (apologies if your home dir really is /my/home/dir)

        Same birthday, too; it fair makes one wonder. Ha, very different location though; whew, that was a close one.
