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.
