Interesting meditation!

I have another solution. Keeping images, maybe large ones, in memory or in a database forces you to use mod_perl to deliver them: you have a long print that can be instead handled by apache itself. You are replicating content generation and embedding security inside this phase of apache's life cycle.

What you need instead is authentication, authorization and access control. Following this route you need 'only' to create directories with access rights embedded in their names. A dedicated access control can give authorization to display some content to the real apache, gaining in speed and modularity.

If you need to share images between many servers I think NFS fyle system is a better option. Some discussions about this option can be found on mod_perl mailing list.

Hope this helps. Ciao, Valerio

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



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
