RT & apache2

Hi,

I’m using a RT 2.0.13 on an old SuSE 7.0 server.
I want to move it to a Gentoo linux with an apache2 web server.
But as far as I read, RT only works on apache 1.3.x (mod_perl problem if I
remember).
Is there any plan to make it run on apache2?

Thanks :slight_smile:

No, it works fine. Been running it on Apache 2 for months. Just mod_perl
isn’t as stable as it should be on Apache2.

Aw. How unstable is it?
Do you have to restart apache2?
It’s what I have to do on my current server once a week… :-/

Well, if it works on apache2, then the problem comes from Gentoo.
I’ll check on their forums.
Thanks!

Personally, I don’t see why they say it’s unstable…

My RT Apache2 was last restarted on November 13th and doesn’t generally need
restarting (that restart was for an upgrade to mod_perl - Version 1.99_17 -
Oct 22, 2004). It is running on one helluva box tho’ :slight_smile:

Even easier with fast_cgi

What is easier with fast_cgi then with mod_perl?

My tests shown that if Apache is 1.xx then FastCGI is better.

  1. FCGI is faster then MP1, perfomance boost is around 10-15%.
  2. You have to build MP1 static usually.
  3. Didn’t test memory usage a lot.

Autrijus Tang said that with Apache2 MP2 has the same speed as FCGI but
use less memory.

Also want to say that MP2 works fine as DSO so you don’t need to rebuild
Apache if you want rebuild MP2 or/and perl.

Because many users doesn’t upgrade thier MP2 up to recent.
They can’t imagine that 1.99_07 is more then one year old or may be more.
