Hi diotalevi,

First of all, thanks for frontpaging the parent node :)

I posted it for a couple of (underlying) reasons:

Firstly I don't know enough about setting up a server and installing mod_perl. Though I've gotten apache, Perl and Mysql to work on my local server, it's on Windows XP. If I ever were to set up my own live server, I would like to do it on Linux or its equivalent. But I only know Linux skin-deep and there're lots of security thingies that I know nuts about.

Secondly, most shared hosting plans don't include mod_perl in their packages. Dedicated hosting does offer that option with an additional cost, but it's way too expensive.

Finally, even if I am capable of setting up my own server on a Linux, I would much prefer to leave that responsibility to those who can do it well. Furthermore, you need to get a leased line or something and the costs of keeping the server running might be too high to maintain.

So I really wanted to find out what mod_cgi's limits are and to hear from those who have used it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
