Subject SV: Installing from scratch Apache + mod_perl + Apache::ASP (+maybe others) on unix
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2002 09:43:34 GMT

Hi Tim,

<flameproof>AIX is unix hell :=)</flameproof>

Solaris 8 and better ships with a binary apache
with a statically linked mod_perl, the following doc
will guide you:

If you just want to evaluate Apache::ASP you might consider
installing on Linux or even on Windows.
