    Question


    Hi!

    I'm trying to add the module mod_perl to my server where I'm hosting a website that is created on the fly through CGIs writen in PERL. These last months I'm getting a lot of visitors and it's getting slower, and I read that mod_perl would acceletare the interpreter of PERL (introducing it into httpd).

    My server is using Red Hat 6.0, with a Apache 1.3.14 (installed with rpm). I have read the documentation of mod_perl and there it says that I need to configure and build Apache with mod_perl... Is this absolutely necesary?

    I don't have the src of Apache (because of the installation in rpm). Then, I need to get the package src.rpm?

    I have installed other modules in my Apache using DSO (just installing the archive *.so where needed, and also the libraries, modifying httpd.conf, restarting httpd and worked) and I didn't need to rebuild Apache.

    I'm very confused about it.
    Perhaps it would be more easy change to PHP?

    Thanks for your help.

    You'll need to recompile Apache from source (can't use RPMs for mod_perl). Get the full scoop from http://perl.apache.org/guide/install.html.
