  Can you load the Perl module using the "" file which is included with the server?

  Are your Perl scripts correct?  i.e. are there any parse errors?

  Can you load the Perl module using *simple* perl scripts?  I.e. ones which are empty, or nearly so?

  i.e. narrow down the source of the problem.
