[Catalyst] FastCGI Deployment problem - can't find templates

Okay.  I've done this.

I did some more checking, and I realize that I'm not sure where the static =
files and templates should be installed on a production server.  It doesn't=
 look like they get picked up in the make process.

I currently have them in the /opt/myserver directory.  My application perl =
module files are in the standard site_perl location.

Where should the templates, etc go?

Your template files are not static files. They shouldn't be in the =

static directory. A fairly standard configuration is to have a templates =

directory right underneath root, at the same level as the static directory.

You should probably move the templates directory one level up and adjust =

the config for your TT view.
