Catalyst and FastCGI

software development

#1

Has anyone figured out how to get Catalyst to deploy on DH?

I went though the MyApp tutorial and all is well in the development server, but I’m running into the old “Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error.” error.

I know what the problem is, I just don’t know what to do about it. I did read through the article on Perl and FastCGI in the wiki. Again, I get it, I’m just stuck.

There’s an article on the wiki about it, but I have no idea if it is accurate: Catalyst

Thanks for the response, but my question is directly related to the end of the wiki article - the part that ends with a to-do list. I was wondering if anyone had figured it out. If I go to mydomain.com/MyApp/script/myapp_fastcgi.fcgi I get a a 500 Internal Error and an error in my http log that says:

"FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server “/home/user/mydomain.com/MyApp/script/myapp_fastcgi.fcgi”

After wrangeling with my .htacccess file, I was able to get back to that same error.

BTW, I have it deployed with cgi using the following .htaccess:


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/?MyApp/script/myapp_cgi.pl
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ script/myapp_cgi.pl/$1 [PT,L]

When I change this to my myapp_fastcgi.fcgi I get the above problem.
