Hi Gerald,

The include file has no package name. But I left out one crucial part 
of my example that makes all the difference. :-) Once I require the 
unique (per virtualhost) include file I then stuff the variables into 
the $req object. So if I have 5 virtualhosts then mod_perl will cache 
the 5 different include files and my module will put the correct values 
into $req depending on which site is being accessed.

At least that's my theory! :-) However Andrew's way is probably better, 
which is to put the db connect info into the  environment (per 
virtualhost in httpd.conf) and then pull the constants from a database 

But in any case, will the method I suggested work? As I said before I'm 
doing all of this testing on one virtualhost and haven't rolled any of 
it out to my real sites yet. So I want to catch this stuff as soon as
