Re^2: Perl cgi without mod_perl, your experienceby kiat (Vicar)

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.
