    Has anyone here sucessfuly installed Plainblack WebGUI?

    In the process of attempting to install it - though am having slight difficulty with mod_perl and apache I believe.

    I understand that there may be incompatibility problems with mod_perl and cPanel - is this a correct assumption?

    So many questions........

    If so - then WebGUI isn't really going to be very successful - slooooowww...

    :eek:

    Right I've gone insane in trying to install WebGUI - And don't anyone think about shelling out for their "detailed" manual for $50, since the only added detail is for when you actually get the thing running!!...

    In my attempt to install via .tar.gz and also .rpm - I only managed to damage my httpd.conf file (thank god for remembering to backup!!). There are so many dependancies that don't recognise when they'v been included - and try you to get Image::Magick to make!! pernickety bugger of a thing!

    There is details also in how to setup on a cPanel box within their discussion forum (hack by a user) - though this too did not function as expected... *sigh* ...

    All in all - I sucessfully managed to write off a day and a half and lost what little hair I have left!

    Anyhows - I've settled for using mambo as the CMS for the site I am currently working on. Easy install (less than 10 minutes) - and it's quite intuitive in how you use it - modular.

    Beats the hell out of WebGUI - which wants to take over yer entire server for it's own use... bah humbug!

    Never tried WEBGUI.
    However, while trying to run mod_perl programs with mod_perl compiled thru easyapache ... indeed it never really worked.

    Try the following:
    Build mod_perl as DSO. That's how things work for me where i am using many mod_perl programs like webmail/forum etc. Take note of following however:

    (1). Get your mod_perl programs running by having mod_perl built as DSO.
    (2). Once you succeed, then use a proxied mod_perl httpd (ie two httpd's the proxied one with mod_perl). Reason is that it's no point having a large httpd serving all static contents, images etc which might be killing on resoures....
