I am using DBI::SQLite in a mason context. Since I'm new to this stuff, I'm writing (non mason) test scripts and then transferring the syntax into the web app code. So, this is the "mason" code that worked in a script:

% my $db = DBI->connect("DBI:SQLite:$db_file"); % if (exists $ARGS{name}) { $db->do("insert into subjects (name) value +s ('$ARGS{name}');"); % print $ARGS{name}; } % my $sql = $db->prepare("select * from subjects"); % $sql->execute;

The prepare and execute work fine. However, initially the write (do insert) line produced this in httpd's error log:

unable to open database file at /var/www/html/mason/subjlist.comp line 4.

Even tho the file is owned by apache. So I changed the mode to 666 from 644 (probably not advisable) to see what would happen (ie, if maybe perl is running as a different user), but I get the same response. The print debugging line comes out correct, and there is no SQLite error.

What have I missed?

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
