    Hi,

    I have a client who would like me to install mod_perl. The problem is that his script is pressuring up the server load. I have, however, heard that mod_perl can make Apache unstable. Is that true? - I found that mod_perl can be installed via WHM 'Install a perl module'. Is it safe to do it from there. I heard that it's a huge package and I'm a bit nervous about doing it.

    Thanks
    John

    mod_perl is FANTASTIK! But go read before you do it...

    http://perl.apache.org/docs/1.0/guide/

    It suexec don't work with it. The reason is here:
    http://perl.apache.org/docs/1.0/guide/install.html#Is_it_possible_to_run_mod_perl_enabled_Apache_as_suExec

    Hope that helps.
    Richard.
