I should have clarified. This application is still running under mod_cgi (or at least that was my intention). I installed fastcgi to run a couple of instances of RequestTracker on the same machine. The RT vhost container looks like this:
I would like to run this new application under fastcgi one of these days, but it was written as a CGI application and I had not counted on having to refactor this code just yet, just to host RT on the same box where I'm building this.
Is it not possible to run mod_cgi and mod_fastcgi at the same time on the same apache server? And if not, can anyone recommend a good tutorial to guide such a refactoring of essentially working code? I was well on the path to a beta launch before this little hickup.
No, it does not. I still get those same errors:Can't locate object method "_GenerateAccountSummary" via package , even though that is a valid method in my ::Account module, use'd by my base class.
It was a long weekend, but as I ponder this, more of it is coming back to me.
I'm working on a Debian server. The previous weekend I had installed mod_perl, until I encountered namespace clashes when I attempted to run a second instance of RT on the same apache. Further research led me to believe that fastcgi would bypass that issue.
But when it came time to install fastcgi, I ran into some conflicts with respect to the pre-requisites. In order to resolve those, I wound up doing an `apt-get dist-upgrade`. I then had to completely rebuild my site's perl lib, most of it from cpan.
I was focused on making RT work. I did not come back to testing this application under development until I had those two RT instances up and running. And that is when I encountered this issue.
I don't know if that sheds any light on this situation or not. But perhaps it was not fastcgi which broke Exporter, but something else I did in that move from Etch to Lenny, in order to get fastcgi working.
