in reply to Apache 2 and mod_perl

looking a little more at the doc i learned that mod_perl 2.0 works only with apache2 but as it is still considered as a beta, i might not use it, so installing it for testing purposes is kinda pointless... wich brings me back to point 1: is mod_perl 1.0 usable withe apache 2?

    No, apache 2 requires mod_perl 2.
      all right that 'll save me a lot of hassle...
      is mod_perl2 stable enough for production purposes or is it highly not recommended to use it in prod?
      apart from that, apache2 gave me impressive results when benchmarking with ab against a single html page. it was able to handle 1400+ hits a sec, whereas apache1 on the same box only handled about 650-700... wow! i've got to figure out if it performs as well in real life though...
        It is considered pretty solid in the pre-fork MPM mode (basically the apache 1 model) on popular platforms like Linux. The threaded MPMs are not as safe at this point. For static content, apache 2 is considered stable.

        That is what beta means: not for production. There's also a useful guideline that the first release also isn't for production. Others will jump on it and find some other nasty bugs for you but you only avoid those by letting it sit for a bit until it increments past the x.0 version.
