perl mod configuration issue - need help please

Postby longlostname » 19. September 2006 01:53

I am a newbie so please be patient with me.

I am trying to utilize PERL and I am having some issues. I am wanting to add the following lines to my PERL script:
use Apache::Constants qw(OK);
use Apache::Request;
use Apache::Util qw(escape_html);

Based on my reading, in order to do this, I must add these packages to my local repository using the following example command:
ppm
install Apache::Constants

When I do this, I get the following error: Installing package 'Apache-Constants'...
Error installing package 'Apache-Constants': Could not locate a PPD file for package Apache-Constants.

I have updated my repository list with 2 more repository servers but I still am not able to get the install to work.

I did a default install of XAMPP, except for the fact that everything is installed on my D drive instead of the C drive. I am also getting errors using the verify command in PPM.

I downloaded all of this from:

Installation with the Installer


This is the first time I have tried to add a module so I suppose that I am missing a step. I have completely uninstalled all of the XAMPP/PERL software and re-installed fresh and still have the same issues. Can someone please look at this and let me know what the issue is?

Can you please tell me how to resolve the error message in my PPM VERIFY statement?
Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong when trying to install an additional module?

Thanks
