[rt-devel] Apache 2/ Mod_perl2/ RT 3.0.7 problem

This is what I did:
o download mod_fastcgi
o uncompress and extract it.
o cd mod_fastcgi-2.4.2
o mv Makefile.AP2 Makefile
o make top_dir-/etc/httpd install
o edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and add:

--> In the "LoadModule" section, I added the following line at the end 
of the list:
LoadModule fastcgi_module modules/mod_fastcgi.so

--> After the line "AddHandler type-map var", I added the following lines:
# For FastCGI applications
AddHandler fastcgi-script fcg fcgi fpl

FastCgiServer /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi

--> In the Virtual Hosts section, I added the following lines:
ScriptAlias /rt3 /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi/

o Note that, in my situation, I access my rt3 installation via a browser 
by pointing to "http://my.site.com/rt3" rather than having a virtual 
host dedicated to rt3 (eg: http://rt3.mysite.com).  In that case, you 
would have "ScriptAlias / /opt/rt3/bin/mason_handler.fcgi/"
o Also note that, with FastCGI, it cannot serve up the images, so you 
have to have the images accessible OUTSIDE of your RT tree.  This means 
that you would have to edit your RT_SiteConfig.pm and 
'Set($WebImagesURL, "<images_url>"', and then copy the relative images 
over to that url.  Fortunately, RT is very lightweight on the number of 
images. :)

Let me know if you have any problems.  I would be glad to help!
