Apache mod_perl


I would like to install Apache:ASP in the Apache web server that comes with
the Slackware 8.0 distribution. Having read the install instructions, it appears
that I have to install mod_perl first. The instructions on the Apache web site
seem to indicate that I will have to completely recompile Apache with the
source code for mod_perl included.

Is there any way to avoid a complete recompile; i.e. is there some kind of
binary add-on?

BTW, pkgtool reveals that there is no mod_perl module included in the
distribution but I'm not sure.

Additional

After a more exhaustive reading of the mod_perl - Apache install
instructions it appears that I can compile mod_pearl as an add
on to an already compiled 'httpd' using APXS sort of outside
the Apache source tree.

However, a reading of the requirements for creating a mod_perl
module as a DSO indicates that the version of Perl must have been
built using the system's native malloc(). Accordingly, if the following
is produced:

% perl -V:usemymalloc
usemymalloc='y';
% perl -V:bincompat5005
bincompat5005='define';

rebuild Perl with -Ubincompat5005.


My system returns "usemymalloc='n'; and bincompat5005='define';

Do I still have to rebuild Perl or can I use APXS and create a DSO
module for Apache without running into problems?

Sorry for bringing back an old thread, but this pretty closely pretains to what I need.

Ive got Apache 1.3.29 already installed and running great. My boss needs to install a program that requites mod_perl and I REALLY REALLY dont want to have to recompile it all.

I was just wondering if anyone could give me a how-to or maybe a link to a page with some more details about what you were talking about in your 2nd post.

Thanks!

Yeah guys,

How the heck (in english) do you get asp web pages to work on Apache.
I've read apache's web site, but it's confusing.
So you have to install the mod perl first????
Would appriacate any feedback.

To install mod_perl without recompiling Apache, try the walkthrough on my site:

It worked for me.

Thank you

mindfrost82

Just a quick "Thank you" for all the time you saved me with your walk-through. One MoveableType installation just went a whole lot more smoothly and now runs quicker too.

Regards,

dkpw
