Foswiki on GitHub is open for business! Next release meeting: Monday September 15, 1300Z

Item2131: All warnings causes Foswiki to throw message "Foswiki detected an internal error." with CGI 3.47

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Low Closed Engine configure Main.WillNorris, Main.GeorgeClark
CPAN CGI 3.47 causes all warnings and methods that makes use of exceptions for normal processing (at least I think there are some) causes Foswiki to error out with "Foswiki detected an internal error."

Among the triggers from my short experience are email failure during registration and creation of an existing account.

Fixed after I replaced the CGI module of my Strawberry Perl install with CGI 3.42.

Among the CPAN CGI releases that caused issues from my experience are 3.43 and 3.47

I think this is not really a Foswiki issue.

Please update the documentation and configuration page with recommended CPAN CGI versions

i updated the lib/DEPENDENCIES file and InstallationGuide, thanks. also set the minimum version to 3.15, as specified in the comments. should we have a checker for specific versions?

-- WillNorris - 12 Apr 2010

I've added some checker code that will add a warning to the configure pages. It detects and warns for versions 2.89, 3.37, 3.43 and 3.47 If CGI versions are a problem should this be configurable somewhere so tht the DEPENDENCIES, Installation Guide and configure warnings are all synchronized?

Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) ships with 3.43, so I have made Support.Faq25
