I am attempting to install slash on CentOS 4. I previously installed from the tarball, then found this mailing list and uninstalled using these instructions:
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_name=B6DE443E-8863-4535-8AD1-62FAB0E18CD4%40lottadot.com
 
I since used CVS to get tag T_2_5_0_200 of slash and the install seemed to go fine until I hit step 7 "Start it up". At that point, Apache gave this error:
 
[root slash]# /usr/local/slash-apache/bin/httpd -f /usr/www/honestken/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Syntax error on line 22 of /usr/local/slash/site/honestken.com/honestken.com.conf:
Can't call method "getTagnameidCreate" on an undefined value at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Slash/Clout.pm line 37.
 
Now, the INSTALL file says this is a problem with DB connection, but install-slashsite already created all the MySQL tables successfully. I did all the tests for DB connectivity listed in INSTALL and my setup is passing them all. Looking in the code, the problem variable is not $slashdb, it is $tags_reader.
 
Is my error still caused by DB problems, or could it be something else?
 
Thank you,
Ken
