in thread Need a Perl capable VMS based web server

I looked into HP's apache for VMS this morning. Unfortunately, the servers are running VMS V6.2 and it looks like apache wants V7.1 or later.

However, a little more digging today and I found the WASD server. It looks like it might be derived from the OSU server that was in use here. I'm trying to install it now but I'm still open to other suggestions.

--- print map { my ($m)=1<<hex($_)&11?' ':''; $m.=substr('AHJPacehklnorstu',hex($_),1) } split //,'2fde0abe76c36c914586c';

    Apache definitely wants 7.1 -- I did the initial mod_perl port, and it depends on some stuff that came in with 7.1.

    WASD's not an OSU-derivitive, but it may well do what you need, which'd be nice.

    I'd ask if you could upgrade, but if you've not left 6.2 as it is, that's not likely. 6.2 and 7.x can be clustered, though--have you considered throwing a small 7.[123[]] box into the cluster to act as the webserver?

      Upgrading isn't an option. They'll probably be off these systems in a few months but they need this running in the mean time. Throwing a 7.1 box into the cluster may be an option if I can't get WASD working.

      --- print map { my ($m)=1<<hex($_)&11?' ':''; $m.=substr('AHJPacehklnorstu',hex($_),1) } split //,'2fde0abe76c36c914586c';
