Recommended Perl Version: 5.18.2 or above
Libraries Required: SOAP::Lite, Crypt::SSLeay
Operating System: Linux (Ubuntu 14+), Mac OSX (10+), Windows (8+)
Step One: Install Perl and Modules
The cache control relevant script requires perl environment to execute. Please build your environment as below.
Configuring ActivePerl for Windows
- Download the MSI installer of ActiveState Perl 5.18.4 build 1805 (ActivePerl-126.96.36.1995-MSWin32-x86.msi) from ActiveState:
- To install ActivePerl, double click the ActivePerl-188.8.131.525-MSWin32-x86.msi file that you downloaded. The ActivePerl setup wizard guides you through the installation process.
- To configure ActivePerl from the command prompt, from the Start Menu, choose Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.
- To open the ActivePerl Programmer's Package Manager (PPM), version 3.1 shell, at the command line, type ppm3 and press Enter.
This PPM shell opens.
- To add a new repository, at the PPM shell prompt, type: rep add winnipeg http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/cgi-bin/ppmserver?urn:/PPMServer58 and press Enter.
- At the ppm shell, type: install Crypt-SSLeay, and press Enter.
- Ensure that both ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll are installed in your Perlin directory.
- To exit the ActivePerl ppm shell, type q and press Enter.
Configuring Perl for Red Hat Linux
- Download the Crypt-SSLeay RPM for Perl.
You can download perl-Crypt-SSLeay 0.45-2 from http://www.redhat.com/swr/i386/perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.45-2.i386.html.
- To install the RPM, at the command prompt, type sudo rpm -Uvh perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.45-2.i386.rpm, and press Enter.
RPM installs the Perl Crypt-SSLeay package.
- To open the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network shell (CPAN-shell), at the command line, type perl -MCPAN -e shell, and press Enter.
The CPAN-shell prompt appears.
- To install the SOAP:Lite modules, at the CPAN-shell prompt, type install SOAP::Lite and press Enter.
The CPAN-shell guides you through the installation and configuration of SOAP::Lite.
- To exit the CPAN-shell after you successfully install SOAP::Lite, type quit and press Enter.
Step Two: Copy Relevant Library
Please copy the attached iControlTypeCast.pm from the attached Cache_Control.zip to the library folder of the installed Perl environment where other *.pm files are residing.
Step Three: Execute Application
Please download and execute the attached Cache_Control.pl script extracted from the Cache_Control.zip. Please keep the Cache_Control.conf in the same directory while executing this.
