"In the previous article, I passed along quite amazing Web performance reports from companies that have deployed mod_perl heavily. You might be surprised by this, but you can quite easily get similarly amazing results if you move your service to mod_perl as well. In fact, getting started with mod_perl shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes, the time it takes to compile and configure the server on a decent machine and get it running."
"In this article I'll show step-by-step installation and configuration scenarios, and chances are you will be able to run the basic statically compiled mod_perl setup without reading any other documents. Of course, you will want and need to read the documentation later, but I think you will agree with me that it's ultimately cool to be able to get your feet wet without knowing much about the new technology up-front."
"The mod_perl installation was tested on many mainstream Unix platforms, so unless you have some very non-standard system you shouldn't have any problems when building the basic mod_perl server."
