Documentation

LocalLib

This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

Defines the absolute path to a local Perl library. By using local::lib, end users can use their home directories to place Perl libraries without a root privilege.

The path that actually gets searched by Perl may be different than what you’d expect from this directive. Example, when setting this on Linux:

LocalLib /data/www/lib

The relevant folders that are actually searched are:

  • /data/www/lib/lib/perl5/x86_64-linux-thread-multi
  • /data/www/lib/lib/perl5

If you use that directive, check your System Information screen to verify the exact Perl inclusion path.

This directive was introduced in Movable Type 5.1.

Usage

Value should be a absolute path:

LocalLib /ABSOLUTE/PATH/TO/LIB
