Re: Anyone got mod_perl working?

I figured out that Apache 1.3.2x is really slow on Cygwin if compared with
Apache 2.x. but I didn't tried to build Apache2 with mod_perl yet.

No, not a mistake of you, the httpd.conf for the mod_perl tests doesn't work
OOTB on Cygwin.

I have it working, it it tells me "All tests successful, 8 tests skipped."
at the end;)  I my previous mail I described the two changes I made to the
test.conf file.

I used a newer mod_perl version from CVS, but there are no greater changes.

perl Makefile.PL \
 APACHE_SRC=../apache_$APACHE_VER/src \
 DO_HTTPD=1 2>&1 | tee $CWD/log.configure-mod_perl

> in /tmp/apache_1.3.22

I used Apache 1.3.20 and I needed to modify the Apache Makefile
because libperl5_6_1.a isn't searched only libperl.a:

So I need to do this:
perl -i.bak -p -e 's#-lmm#-lmm -lperl5_6_1#;' $TMP/apache_$APACHE_VER/src/Makefile

or something like that before configuring everything:
ln -s /lib/perl5/5.6.1/cygwin-multi/CORE/libperl5_6_1.a /lib/libperl.a

Looks ok.
I used this for the beginning:
<IfModule mod_perl.c>
    <Location /perl>
        SetHandler      perl-script
        PerlHandler     Apache::Registry
        Options         +ExecCGI
        PerlSendHeader  On

Seems to work;)
