I’m finally getting ready to do a fresh install of RT 3.4.1. Reading the
various sources of documentation about which ‘required packages’ to use
has me a bit confused. So, here are my questions:
o Is it true that I can go with Apache and FastCGI as an alternative to
using mod_perl at all?
o If so, which versions of Apache and FastCGI should I use? At the fastcgi
download site, there is a mod_fastcgi-2.4.2 source distribution; would
this be OK?
o I’d like to use the most current version of Apache that is feasible, on
the assumption that is more likely to have recent security patches
incorporated. But I also want a combination of Apache and FastCGI that
will work with RT 3.4.1.
o Is it true that I don’t need mod_perl at all, especially if I go with
Apache 2.x and FastCGI? A confusing statement in the docs is this:
mod_perl 2.0 isn’t quite ready for prime time just yet;
Best Practical Solutions strongly recommends that sites
use Apache 1.3 or FastCGI.
Does this mean I could use Apache 2.x + FastCGI and forget mod_perl? Or
must I use Apache 1.3 anyway in order to avoid mod_perl 2.0?
Could someone please clarify? I’ve not got much experience installing or
supporting web servers, so I’m not very familiar with the relationship
among the various associated components.
For what it’s worth, my initial environment will be FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE
and a current version of Postgres for the RT db. Later, though, we may be
moving to a Linux platform.
Thanks for any help on this.
BTW, is there an archive for this list?
