Missing dependencies on FreeBSD and FCGI

When I tried installing EditChapterPlugin I observed "Validating" dialog and nothing poped after that. I made several attempts with the same result.

I found no sign of error messages in working/logs directory.

Then I checked nginx error log and found the following:
2016/01/24 07:31:02 [error] 861#0: *20696 FastCGI sent in stderr: "Can't locate object method "_platform_check_size" via package "Foswiki::Engine::FastCGI::ProcManager" at /usr/local/www/ line 102" while reading response header from upstream, client:, server:, request: "POST /bin/jsonrpc/configure HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://", host: "", referrer: ""

As I was looking through things I tried yet another time and suddenly it all worked. I have not done anything special, no system reconfiguration of any kind. I don't think I even restarted the foswiki service.

So, I think the error I saw was the real error (I see it repeated around 4 times, which is about the numbe of times I tried to install the plugin).

My installation is on FreeBSD 10.2. The sytem is nstalled inside a FreeBSD jail and it is the only service running. I can produce any additional data you may want to see.

I just updated to latest foswiki. It is my personal wiki, so I don't know much about how to manage it.

Thank you

I've got another log error:

Use of uninitialized value $params[2] in join or string at /usr/local/www/ line 228.

do(INSERT INTO UserItemTag (user_id, item_id, tag_id) VALUES (?,?,?) : --) : No such file or directory : (Can't locate object method "_platform_check_size" via package "Foswiki::" while reading response header from upstream, client: 198.182.9.--, server:, request: "POST /bin/save HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://", host: "", referrer: ""

It appears that error occurs in module responsible for extracting memory limit from Apache. I am running under Nginx. documentation comment:

Subclass of L which adds checks for memory limits like L.

I found that I was missing BSD::Resource CPAN module. I installed it with

pkg install p5-BSD-Resource

Thanks for the point-out of the missing module. We had not run into that before. The SystemRequirements document has been updated for the upcoming Foswiki 2.1.
