The difference is, say using mod_perl, modules are long live as long
as Apache is running and global variables can be shared across request
from different clients.

If you changed the Perl module (pm), restart of server is needed.

While php don't have this issue. Each request is completely isolated.

So this is why I am asking the difference between mod_perl & mod_php
in term of Apache processing, what are the difference.
