If you intend to use the mod_perl programming language support with your Apache web server, it can be interesting to install the small perl module program named Devel::Symdump. This third party module will allow you to
inspect perl's symbol table and the class hierarchies within a running program. To build and install it, follow these steps.
These are the package(s)
Move into the new Devel-Symdump directory and type the following commands on your terminal to compile and install the module on your Linux server:
Once the module has been installed on your system, you must include in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file the following lines to be able to see the status of different Perl modules on the server:
Edit the httpd.conf file, vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and add the following lines:
Deny from all
Allow from 192.168.1.0/24
You must restart the Apache web server for the changes to take effect:
To restart Apache, use the following commands:
Shutting down https: [ OK ]
Starting httpd: [ OK ]
Finally, we must test the new Devel-Symdump module to be sure that we can see status of different Perl modules on the server.
To verify that it works, points your web browser to the following address: https://my-web-server/perl-status/. The <my-web-server> is the address where your Apache web server resides.
Please as always Cleanup :
