( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

After several weeks of effort I could not get perlbrew to install on my 1and1 server. I did get the generic ActiveState 5.14 to install, However I don't see a perl file in the bin directory. I have a symbolic link called perl5.14.2. I don't have much experience with linux, but I believe that this symbolic link calls the perl-static application. And I can run perl-static -v and get the correct Perl information screen, so I know Perl 5.14.2 is installed and running. I have updated the .bash_profile to add the ~/Perl-5.14/bin to the path and now I can run my scripts from the command line using either perl5.14.2 <name of script> or perl-static <name of scriipt>. I have also added the ~/Perl5-14/lib directory as my PERL5LIB path.

When I try to run the scripts via Apache I'm still getting the default Perl interpreter running. I have changed the #! to reflect the Perl 5.14 path:


I have also tried the following:

#!~/Perl-5.14/bin/perl5.14.2 and #!~/Perl-5.14/bin/perl-static and #!/kunden/homepages/XX/XXXXXXXX/htdocs/Perl-5.14/bin/perl-static

I'm left to ponder my life here. I hate running on a shared box. What am I missing? Do I need to point Apache to Perl5.14? I thought by changing the shebang it should work. Should I re-install ActiveState into a directory? Do I need to change anything else in the .bash_profile to force any reference to perl to be redirected to my Perl-5.14?

As always thanks for the help

    [erix]: it has TOP, IIRC
    [Corion]: erix: Ah. I use where 1 = 0 for queries where I only am interested in the structure ;)
    [erix]: 1=0 is as short as TOP :)
    [erix]: "code of someone that died" -- kinda nice if your code stops working too
    [erix]: hard to implement, hmm
    [Corion]: erix: Well, they also seem to have changed the server, or some software, or whatever, and seem to be in the process of changing the DB schema from having the "username" as primary key to something else.
    [Corion]: Far too many things being done at once, or maybe only now has it become apparent that nobody knows that piece of software anymore
