Hi Jack,
I forgot to mention that I use FastCGI instead of mod_perl whenever
possible.  It is much faster and helps keep Apache more stable.
You will see various FastCGI commands and comments throughout the LAMP
University document I linked in my previous message.

gravitate toward Apache because I'm so familiar with it. However, that
is mostly from the CGI way of doing things. I'll check out the links
you sent.

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:)

Yes, that makes sense. Just the jump start I needed.

Hi Jack,
We use ShinyCMS on Catalyst on Apache2 on Ubuntu.
There may be some useful info for you in my LAMP University install
notes document, starting around line 428:

Note the  sections of that Apache2 site config file.
I use local::lib to install Shiny/Catalyst as my non-root user
'wbraswell', then chown the '/home/wbraswell/public_html' directory
for Apache use, then set the above-linked Apache config file to find
everything needed in the home directory.
As for Wordpress, we barely have the time to handle our existing
Shiny/Catalyst site, so personally I'll have to pass on anything extra
right now.
Hope this helps!

For some time I've been installing local::lib and PerlBrew to my home
directory. This allows me to install whatever Perl I want to use
without the
restrictions of the system Perl. I'm using PearlBee -
https://github.com/Perl-Evozon/PearlBee - for blogging software and
running plack to serve it up. I'm the only one perusing the web site.

I'm getting ready to some more serious work and would like to use
Apache2. My
questions are: how do make my local::lib available to the pages being
served by
apache, and do I install local::lib to the directory in Apache? Is
there a secure way to still serve the web site from my home directory
with Apache?

TIA for insight or reference to relevant documentation.
Jack Lupton

PS, I need to get PearlBee working with WordPress themes. Seems very
similar to what is being done with the Austin Perl Mongers website.
Anyone up for special sessions of APM on this subject?
