  • 1. Wack everything and re-install. ie
          rm -f /usr/local/slash
          then go into cpan and install Bundle::Slash
          then make install and install-slashsite to
          get your site setup. you should be able to do
          all this, restart apache, and your site should

    The other option would be to check your DBIx::Password setup:

    i'm lost.. i never setup a virtual user named "DSN" i named it slash!

    You did. from the shell, as root, do


    That gives me, on one of my boxes,

    $ locate
    /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/ D BIx/

    cat that file. it's your DBIx::Password configuration file. Edit it. Make sure it has the correct username, password, host, etc in it. That section/part of the file should look something like this:

    2. try a search [] for related information on slashcode
    3. read through the slash mailing list archives [].

      Not necessarily. But then he told the slash install scripts that his virtual user is DSN. Either ways it doesn't work for him now.
