A wierd perl version problem...


Ok, I'm installing mod_perl-1-99_05 for Apache and when I do what it says I get a wierd error saying this:
Quote:
[root@MyHost mod_perl-1.99_05]# perl Makefile.PL \
> EVERYTHING=1 \
> APACHE_SRC=../apache_1.3.27/src \
> USE_APACI=1 \
> PREP_HTTPD=1 \
> DO_HTTPD=1

That's what I typed, this is what it gave me:


Reading Makefile.PL args from @ARGV
!!! Unable to determine server version, aborting.
!!! Please specify MP_APXS or MP_AP_PREFIX.
and the HowTo says this:
Quote:
3.3.2. Download the source

Origin-Site: [http://www.apache.org/dist/perl] http://www.apache.org/dist/
perl
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.3.3. Building and installing

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
|cd /usr/local |
| |
|tar -xvzf mod_perl-1.27.tar.gz |
| |
|cd mod_perl-1.27 |
| |
|perl Makefile.PL \ |
|EVERYTHING=1 \ |
|APACHE_SRC=../apache_1.3.27/src \ |
|USE_APACI=1 \ |
|PREP_HTTPD=1 \ |
|DO_HTTPD=1 |
| |
|make |
|make install |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Caution Mod_perl can not be compiled as DSO
Do not compile mod_perl as DSO (Dynamic Shared Object)! According to
various sources, Apache will crash (I never tried).
--------------------------------------------------------------

Just to ask the brutally obvious, is your apache source code really in ../apache_1.3.27/src or is it somwhere else? My first guess from the error message is that it isn't finding apache.
