I seem to finally have gotten everything to work under Apache2, Modperl 2 and perl 5.8.1... Everything so far except one wierd thing. Logging out does not work. The error log gives me something like this:
[Tue Oct 07 07:15:13 2003] [error] [client 192.168.1.1] Can't locate object meth
od "header_out" via package "Apache::RequestRec" at (eval 28) line 10.
, referer: http://scoop.myserver.net/
I changed the referer URL because the site is not yet solid enough to recieve visitors. The problem seems to kill mod_perl, though I can't state that as a fact.
From reading elsewhere (and I'm no Perl coder), I found that apparently, 'header_out' is obsolete in mod_perl-2 and 'headers_out' should be used instead. I don't really know what that means or implies, but I figured it could provide clues for someone who does know Perl and is faced with this problem.
I'll try to come back with more details later if anyone is interested.
