    Has anyone tried using lingerd with a cpanel server ? can it be used without messing somthing up ? If you are using how did you go about installing it ?

    Lingerd takes over the job of feeding bytes to the client after Apache has fetched the document, but requires kernel modification. Sounds pretty good, haven't tried it. lingerd - http://www.iagora.com/about/software/lingerd/

    Thanks

    Lingerd is a daemon (service) designed to take over the job of properly closing network connections from an http server like Apache.

    Because of some technical complications in the way TCP/IP and HTTP work, each Apache process currently wastes a lot of time "lingering" on client connections, after the page has been generated and sent. Lingerd takes over this job, leaving the Apache process immediately free to handle a new connection. As a result, Lingerd makes it possible to serve the same load using considerably fewer Apache processes. This translates into a reduced load on the server.

    Lingerd is particularily useful in Apache webservers that generate dynamic pages (e.g in conjunction with mod_perl, mod_php or Java/Jakarta/Tomcat).

    More importantely, lingerd can only do an effective job if HTTP Keep-Alives are turned off; since keep-alives are useful for images, the recommended lingerd setup is to have an Apache/mod_whatever/lingerd server for the dynamic pages, and a plain Apache (or thttpd or boa) for the images.


    Now back to the real question ...has anyone used this with a cpanel server ? if so can you post what you did to install it ?

    Thanks
