Troubleshooting

Error: Can't install extensions (Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch)

The fix is to update CPAN and CPAN:IO::File:
  1. Run sudo cpan Bundle::CPAN IO::File (entering your super user password)
  2. Restart the web server, return back to configure and repeat the install steps
(See Tasks.Item786)

Leopard problems continued

By ArthurClemens - 01 Mar 2009

The Mac OS security update has broken perl, and it broke cpan so that you cannot use it to update CPAN:IO::File. The solution I have followed (with advice on IRC):
  1. Use MacPorts to install a separate version of perl: sudo port install perl5.8
  2. Let Foswiki use the new perl location with the tools script rewriteshebang.pl:
    • cd yourinstallation/bin
    • sudo perl ../tools/rewriteshebang.pl
      • Enter /opt/local/bin/perl
    • cd yourinstallation/tools
    • sudo perl rewriteshbang.pl
      • Enter /opt/local/bin/perl
  3. Set CPANBASE in bin/LocalLib.cfg to empty: $CPANBASE = '...';

Notes (Foswiki 1.1.2):

  1. The tools/rewriteshebang.pl script confirms that you want to change all references to the default perl interpreter to the one entered. You can run this script from directly within the tools/ folder.
  2. There is no CPANBASE definition in bin/LocalLib.cfg.

Error: Can't install extensions (Undefined subroutine &Compress::Zlib::gzopen)

Further instructions (I have not tested them): cpan does not wok - Undefined subroutine &Compress::Zlib::gzopen

Install Zlib.pm from http://search.cpan.org/~pmqs/Compress-Zlib/ and copy to your lib.

Note regarding 1.1.2-1 DMG on Lion

Quick note: I tried http://foswiki.org/Support/FoswikiOnMacOSXLeopard today on my wife's new install of Mac OS Lion (I installed Lion onto a new disk and restored her data from Time Machine: Foswiki didn't work after the restore - it would show the contents of the foswiki bin directory instead of running the scripts.)

So I tried running the 1.1.2-1 pkg installer.

But, it didn't install Foswiki 1.1.2-1 as promised. Even though the dialog said it was successful.

instead it resurrected the previous install of Foswiki. The now running Foswiki says "running Foswiki version Foswiki-1.0.4, Wed, 18 Mar 2009" which I guess was what we had previously installed (but was broken)

I don't know why it failed silently: I didn't look.

I intend to upgrade my laptop to Lion in a couple of weeks, and I might do a regular install there to test it out.

I hope this information is useful to someone.

-- MartinCleaver - 23 Jul 2011

That's odd. Probably some confusion with links under /Library/Webserver/Documents regarding pre-existing installations?

I just tried the 1.1.2 DMG from FoswikiOnMacOSXLeopard and it worked for me on my macbook running Lion. However, I am going to build a new 1.1.3 installer package on Lion in the next days.

-- MatthiasWientapper - 12 Nov 2011

Built a 1.1.3 Package on Lion for Lion and it works on my machine. Can you check again, please?
