On a system that is missing the DBI perl module:

  • Enable the PageCache
  • Attempt to disable the page cache - The JSON request returns 500 - crashed due to missing Perl module DBI
  • Attempt to reload Configure, it crashes
  • Try to view Main/WebHome - it crashes

I recreated this on the Foswiki VM, by removing the DBI module.

The crash will be fixed in 2.1.4, by a fix to that disables the Cache, but the underlying issue - unsaved config changes leaking into the live $Foswiki::cfg hash still exists.
