Improving mod_perl pages / 2019-05-30

2019-05-30 Improving mod_perl pages 6 months ago
I saw some parts in a site that were creating errors and trying to maintain old PHP code was an annoyance again. So I set up the project to port it all to mod_perl to be able to support it again.

Not an easy project, and it will take a while. First work was on understanding the mod_perl registry which keeps scripts and perl interpreters running in Apache. I noticed I was getting old errors from scripts which is because the mod_perl registry doesn't automatically reload scripts (to save file actions). This is not ideal on a development server and can be confusing on a production server. Solution: enable Apache2::Reload with
        # enable perl
        AddHandler perl-script .pl
        PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
        PerlInitHandler Apache2::Reload
Now to write the right perl code...
