Is mod_perl 2.0 baked yet?

I have read the other posts regarding using slash with apache 2.0. They all seem to say mod_perl needs to work first. So its been awhile, is mod_perl 2.0 up to par and can we get slash to work with apache 2.0 yet?

Can Slash handle long lived items

posted by Krow on 06:46 PM March 28th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
I have a need for a site that will support both short time articles and documents that have a very long life (on the order of over 5 years).

Before re-inventing this I wanted to ask if there was a plugin or something that allowed me to have a storage area for documents that have a very long life. For example policies and procedures.

I would like to have a index page for these items generated automaticly and also be able to announce them in a regular story.

For a real example one thing I would like to be able to do is to post scores from a weekly match (USPSA) and have an index page that will show each weeks history. In addition a story would be posted with a link to that weeks scores. Another use would be to have a series of "white papers" that are avaiable from an index page and are also announced in a story.

slashd not disconnecting from mysql

I've just managed to get slash 2.2.6 installed with mySQL 4.0.12 and apache 1.3.27 on a Debian system (local network.) Things appear to be working except that slash doesn't seem to be disconnecting from mySQL after serving up a page - each page eats a new mySQL thread which remains sleeping until enough threads are created such that I run out of memeory (128M.) Is this normal for slash, unique to mySQL 4.0 or debian, or am I just lucky?

RDF generation frequency?

I'm still running Slash 1, but currently converting to Slash 2, albeit slowly. For some reason RSS/RDF feeds are generated only onec a hour. My question is: Is it possible to force slash1 generate RDF more frequently and if it's configurable in slash2? For some reason I haven't found RDF generation interval in configuration files.
