How to disable "mod_perl"The optional Apache server extension "mod_perl" is known to cause a number of issues with our MIDAS room booking and resource scheduling system due to the way it "caches" certain parts of the software. Therefore, "mod_perl" should be disabled prior to the installation of MIDAS on your server.
If you are unsure whether your server is running the "mod_perl" extension, please check with your hosting provider or system administrator.
To disable the "mod_perl" extension under Apache:
- Locate your server's "httpd.conf" config file and open it up in a text editor. If you're running Apache on Windows, and have installed Apache at C:\Apache, your "httpd.conf" will be located at C:\Apache\conf.
- Locate the following line in the httpd.conf file:Include "conf/extra/httpd-perl.conf"
- Comment out this line by adding a "#" (hash) character at the start of the line:#Include "conf/extra/httpd-perl.conf"
- Save the changes to your httpd.conf file, and restart your Apache server.
Once you've disabled "mod_perl" and restarted your server, you will be able to install and use MIDAS.
If you do not have access to your server's "httpd.conf" file and mod_perl is running on your server, please check with your hosting or server provider that it can be disabled.
Please Note: You will be unable to install MIDAS on a server running "mod_perl". Please check with your hosting provider or system administrator if unsure.
