I've been reading the docs on running a mod_perl enabled apache server.
Two different sources suggest running one regular server (for images and
regular web pages) and one mod_perl server for perl cgi because of the
overhead of the child processes on a mod_perl enabled server.
I actually have a spare IP address lying around that I can bind to the
network interface of my RedHat Linux 6.1 machine. From reading the
docs, it seems easy to setup one httpd to BindAddress to one IP, and the
other to the second IP.
My question has to do with config files. I presume that the httpd (or
case the httpsd) that came with RedHat was compiled to know that the
config files were in /etc/httpd/conf.
If I just get the apache and mod_perl source, compile and install with
"out of the box" prefix will be /usr/local/apache, right? So this one
just installed will not bother the other httpsd?
I'm just checking this before I do it... If anybody is running two
daemons at the
same time, I like to hear of any gotchas...
