  • My subject is actually very accurate. The installation notes are clear on what you need. MySQL and Perl can be installed from RPM but Apache and mod_perl will need to be make'd from source. Follow the instructions *carefully* and you will do just fine
    • by Anonymous Coward
      Actually, Apache and mod_perl can be installed via RPM now as well. Easy meat.
      • As long as the mod_perl was compiled with EVERYTHING=1 this is true. I know at one point this was not the case with the RPM's that Redhat gave out.

        You can't grep a dead tree.
        • Heh, you should the RPM I got with Mandrake 8.0. It automatically does Apache/mod_perl with a two server passthrough-proxy method. I'd like to see a newbie start to use Apache/mod_perl with that setup.

          Actually, I was a newbie when I did that. I uninstalled the RPM, did some RTFM and installed from source

          • Really? I have Mandrake 8.1 and I think it's givine me errors relating to that problem. I'm new to Linux, Apache, Perl, and Slash, but I think I pick things up quick and have some experience with Unix so I'm optomistic. Anyway, my next step was going to be to re-install apache, and mod perl, could you give me tips on how to go about doing that? (like should I un-install, if possible, first?)
