I am trying to re-install a complete site on a new server. The site was
written using HTML::Mason by a third party, which is no longer reachable.
The server is running RedHat 8/Apache 2.0.40 with mod_perl support.
After installing most of the module requested by the Makefile.PL from
the Mason bundle, I still get 'need Apache::Request'. That is part of
libapreq, which requires some parts from mod_perl (Apache/src.pm, etc).
And that requires the Apache source. Now, I pulled and built the source
for 2.0.45 (most recent release), but I am very confused as to what my
next steps should be.
Somehow, I should be able to build mod_perl, pointing it to my new 2.0.45
Apache sources, then build libapreq, and then complete Mason. However,
the mod_perl install only wants Apache 1.x.
Please help, for I am lost - this is my first major Linux configuration
project, having always hosted on 3rd party systems before.
