[ApacheGallery] Documentation bug and no warning result in empty page
(My first attempt to send this message bounced because I followed the
instructions from the agusers list confirmation e-mail and sent this to
agusers rather than users.)
Hello! I'm a huge fan of A::G. It's exactly what a gallery should be, no
more, no less.
I wanted to let you know about my installation ordeal that nearly made me
give up on A::G. Hopefully this will save someone else some time.
From the INSTALL file, there is the following config line:
PerlSetVar GalleryTemplateDir '/usr/local/apache/gallery/templates'
I adapted this line to point to where I copied the templates directory.
Then I eagerly fired up Apache, accessed the page, and it was blank. I
looked at the HTML source, and it was empty. I looked at my Apache
error_log and there were no messages. I was completely mystified.
I'm not sure how I finally figured it out. I think I traced through the
source code to analyze what was going wrong. I finally figured out that
the templates directory was invalid. I simply modified GalleryTemplateDir
to point to
and then it worked. I can't imagine I'm the only one this has happened
to, although I couldn't find anything in the forums.
I would recommend the following for the next version:
1. Change the line in INSTALL to point to templates/default
2. Display a warning message when the templates directory is invalid
I hope you keep up the fabulous work. It is greatly appreciated! Thank
