No, very much *not* useless.  He didn't specify which version of Debian
was was using, and therefore which version of Perl, or Apache, or any of
the modules.  Rather than get into a potential "upgrade your OS"
discussion, I opted to suggest a fresh build.

This is a good idea anyway.  With a complex application such as RT, with
a lot of dependencies, it is almost always easiest (especially in the
short run) to set up a sandboxed copy of all the appropriate software,
to ensure that there are no unforeseen interactions.


There is no expedient to which a man will not go to
avoid the real labour of thinking.
