Subject [users@httpd] Re: Using rewrite to forward the request OR mod_perl
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2008 15:58:54 GMT

me. I have been reading about other ways of re-directing the traffic and I
found mod_perl module could also help in doing that. Since I have not done
this before advise beforehand would make things clear.
