|Getting started with mod_perl|
|Target Audience:||People with at least basic Perl and Apache knowledge. A basic CGI script writing experience is necessary.|
What is mod_perl? mod_perl is an Apache server plugin module that embeds a Perl interpreter into the server, making CGI scripts run very fast. It provides object-oriented Perl interfaces to the Apache API, but can be used to run unchanged CGI scripts.
Explore widely used strategies of coupling mod_perl with another Apache server or/and Squid proxy server to improve performance and reduce system requirements. Learn to port and develop CGI scripts and modules under mod_perl, about persistent database connections and various performance improvement techniques.
This course uses mod_perl 1.0 as a base, but most techniques are applicable under mod_perl 2.0.
