apache fails to start up, but says Syntax OK

I'm using perl + mysql to generate my vhosts

this is the script:

<Perl>
use DBI;
my ($sth, $dbh, $domain, $domainID, $createdTS, $created, $sql);
$dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:domain:xxx","xxxx","xxxx");
$sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT * FROM domain");
$sth->execute();
while (($domainID, $domain, $created) = $sth->fetchrow())
{
        if($created == 0)
        {
                system("/bin/mkdir /home/$domain");
                system("/bin/mkdir /home/$domain/www");
                system("/bin/mkdir /home/$domain/ErrorLog");
                system("/bin/chown apache:apache -R /home/$domain");
                $sql = $dbh->prepare("UPDATE domain SET created = 1 WHERE domainID = $domainID");
                $sql->execute();
        }
        push @{$VirtualHost{"*:80"}}, {
                ServerName      => $domain,
                ServerAlias    => "www.$domain",
                DocumentRoot    => "/home/$domain/www",
                ErrorLog        => "/home/$domain/ErrorLog",
        };
}
</Perl>

but when I try to reload apache with "apachectl graceful" it gives me this error:

apachectl: Configuration syntax error, will not run "graceful":
Syntax OK

and if I run apachectl configtest it says "Syntax OK"

But if I remove the perlscript everything works just fine...

the perl-script is in a seperat filem and is included

. I am running Fedora 6 + apache 2

Can You check the main error_log from apache after trying graceful?
