Subject: catch//propagate LWP 501 error on https url if ssl libraries not installed
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.1k
Attempting to open an https:// url when ssl libraries are not installed for LWP gives an error that the url is not "DAV enabled or not accessible." This error is correct but would be more useful if it directed users to correct their own end (ssl install) rather than wonder about the server. LWP returns an internal 501 response that could be propagated back to the user. This would be especially helpful to 'dave' end-users. current error: "Couldn't open https://groups.pm.org:443/groups/losangeles: The URL "https://groups.pm.org:443/groups/losangeles/" is not DAV enabled or not accessible. " internal 501 response: ($response->as_string): 501 Protocol scheme 'https' is not supported (Crypt::SSLeay or IO::Socket::SSL not installed) Content-Type: text/plain Client-Date: Sat, 24 Jul 2010 15:20:47 GMT Client-Warning: Internal response LWP will support https URLs if either Crypt::SSLeay or IO::Socket::SSL is installed.

Hi, good suggestion! I tried to fix the problem and built a test case for it. I'm pushing out a HTTP::DAV release 0.41 as we speak. Please try it and report the results. Thanks again for the feedback, -- Cosimo
Didn't get any feedback yet, but I believe 0.41 fixes the problem. Thanks,

Awesome! Thanks for the update and fix! I forgot I'd filed this ticket and the update email got lost in an abandonded mailbox. I'll upgrade, try again, and let you know how it goes! --spazm
Got no feedback yet, but I'll assume the bug is fixed. -- Cosimo
