Re: OpenBSD or FreeBSD for a Perl web app Production platform?
in thread OpenBSD or FreeBSD for a Perl web app Production platform?
This is why I install my own perl in /usr/local/perl-x.x.x. I have code that I use here at work to use CPAN and install all the modules we need. Then I have a link /usr/local/perl which points to the production version. I like this setup since I can install a new version of perl and modules, have users test using the self contained install.
When testing is done, I point /usr/local/perl to the new version directory. I let the ports that need perl install it and let portupgrade handle the updates.
