Hi Jack

You might want to consider using Nginx rather than Apache2 - my own
experience is that Nginx is easier. It's also worth using Plack so that -
from the viewpoint of your code it doesn't matter whether you're using
Apache2, Nginx or anything else (in principle).


... just food for thought:)
