PREREQUISITES

This package is part of a larger distribution and was NOT intended to be used directly. In order for this plugin to work properly, the following packages must be installed:

  Apache2::WebApp
  Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Cookie
  Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session
  Apache::Session::File
  Apache::Session::Lock::File
  Params::Validate

INSTALLATION

From source:

  $ tar xfz Apache2-WebApp-Plugin-Session-File-0.X.X.tar.gz
  $ perl MakeFile.PL PREFIX=~/path/to/custom/dir LIB=~/path/to/custom/lib
  $ make
  $ make test
  $ make install

Perl one liner using CPAN.pm:

  $ perl -MCPAN -e 'install Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session::File'

Use of CPAN.pm in interactive mode:

  $ perl -MCPAN -e shell
  cpan> install Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session::File
  cpan> quit

Just like the manual installation of Perl modules, the user may need root access during this process to insure write permission is allowed within the installation directory.
