Re^2: SetEnv PERL5LIB in htaccess for Apache 2.2 versus 1.3

in thread SetEnv PERL5LIB in htaccess for Apache 2.2 versus 1.3

... define them under a different variable and incorporate that into a wrapping class. This stops me polluting the core perl variables, and it clearly shows the purpose.

Can you give example, how you do that?

    Here's what I suggest:

    Somewhere in you apache config file, add something like this (the exact path can vary, of course):

    PerlRequire /var/www/perl/startup.pl

    Then create startup.pl so that it looks like this:

    use lib qw(/path/to/my/modules); use MY::MODULE; 1;

    The use lib line adds directories to the search path. If you actually put use MY::MODULE in the startup file, these modules will be preloaded when apache starts up.

      Hi,
      Thanks so much for your reply.

      I don't have the SU power, thus cannot modify config of Apache2.2. I maybe able to ask Admin to modify the Apache config. But I think I cannot ask to customize the Apache config for my home working directory (otherwise he would have to do that for everybody)

      Do you have suggestion how can I get around it with your solution? Is there a generic way the sysadmin can modify the Apache config?

      Regards,
      Edward
