# Set up your Catalyst app as a mod_perl 1.99x application in httpd.conf
# Preload your entire application
# you can also run your app in any non-root location
# Make sure to let Apache handle your static files
# (It is not necessary to remove the Static::Simple plugin
# in production; Apache will bypass Static::Simple if
# configured in this way)
# If not running at a root location in a VirtualHost,
# you'll probably need to set an Alias to the location
# of your static files, and allow access to this location:
Alias /myapp/static /filesystem/path/to/MyApp/root/static
allow from all
DESCRIPTIONThis is the Catalyst engine specialized for Apache2 mod_perl version 1.99x.
WARNINGmod_perl 1.99 was the beta version for mod_perl 2.0. Upgrading to 2.0 is strongly recommended.
CGI ISSUESIn order to run Catalyst under mod_perl 1.99 you will need to downgrade CGI to version 3.07, as it has dropped support for 1.99 in later versions.
ModPerl::RegistryWhile this method is not recommended, you can also run your Catalyst application via a ModPerl::Registry script.
PerlModule ModPerl::Registry Alias / /var/www/MyApp/script/myapp_registry.pl/ <Directory /var/www/MyApp/script> Options +ExecCGI </Directory> <Location /> SetHandler perl-script PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry </Location>
script/myapp_registry.pl (you will need to create this):
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use MyApp; MyApp->handle_request( Apache::RequestUtil->request );
