Posting this as a top level rather than replying to the other threads . . .

If you look at the "getting started" Apache module developer guide you can get an idea of what sorts of hooks are provided. mod_perl allows you to write Perl (vice C code you've got to compile and build into a shared object which you've got to hard kill your server processen to change) to hook in at any of those places. Want to have something run every time a child httpd is spun up? You can just write perl. Want to implement a custom configuration directive? Again, perl. With anything that's available from CPAN at your beck and call.

That said though I will admit there's a (very, very tiny) sliver of merit to the "but everything's a distributed REST k18s service pod cluster these days, so you don't need it" arguments (in that you're likely doing a lot less in any given "service" and then you are using ngnix or the like to hide some of the complexity or shuffle things around to different backends).

Unfortunately I don't have call to use it at $work currently I used to, nor the necessary current familiarity with the apache guts to step up. Maybe it's nostalgia but it'd be a shame to see it gone.

Edit: accidentally a word.

The cake is a lie.

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.
