mod_perl 2 User's Guide

by Stas Bekman & Jim Brandt

mod_perl 2, the next generation of the Apache Perl module, gives you full access to the Apache 2 internals via the Perl programming language, just as mod_perl 1 gave you access to Apache 1. New features in Apache and Perl make mod_perl 2 even more powerful and useful than before, allowing you to quickly write and deploy fast, robust web applications.

As with any major upgrade, there are new features and key changes to mod_perl from the 1.x generation. The mod_perl 2 User's Guide explains these key changes and demonstrates the tools that you can use to port modules and migrate your existing code. Improvements in Apache 2 and mod_perl 2 include:

This guide provides installation and configuration guidelines, as well as descriptions of all of the ways you can plug into the Apache request cycle. You'll also learn how to write mod_perl handlers to deliver content with rapid response times and to leverage your existing CGI scripts with ModPerl::Registry.

Whether you're new to mod_perl or migrating from mod_perl 1, the mod_perl 2 User's Guide will give you the information you need to get up and running on Apache 2 and mod_perl 2.
