in reply to Apache and mod_perl resources

I have the Eagle book (aka Writing Apache Modules with Perl and C). It's quite good and has really nice examples. You can ofcourse also check the mod_perl site. I recommend using a 1.3.x release of Apache since you'll probably find more people using it and being able to help you.

The best way for me to learn about mod_perl was by experimenting and using the perl skills I already had. mod_perl isn't a good way to learn perl IMHO so you better work on a good base (if you don't have it yet). Don't be afraid to take a random Apache:: module and read through the source code...

... I'm belgian but I don't play one on TV.

    Hi, thanks for the reply :)

    I already have a fairly solid background in Perl, albeit a bit rusty. I do plan to use Apache 1.3.x (1.3.28 specifically right now), mostly due to unfounded, paranoid stability/security concerns.

    I've been looking at a few other books since I posted this (funny how that works ;), and I think these might do the trick:

    Any recommendations for or against these or any other resource would be appreciated :)

      Well, mod_perl Cookbook, Practical mod_perl, and Writing Apache Modules in Perl and C (the Eagle Book) are the only books about general mod_perl stuff. If you don't know much about apache then other books might help, but really I think that these three books plus the stuff on the site are really the primary resources. You should also join the mailing list if you haven't already.
