Subject RE: 30 second timeout

The timeout on the apache side is controlled by the "Timeout" variable
in your config file. Under debian at least this is set to 300 (5 min) by
default. Have a look at /etc/apache2 or wherever your apache config
files live and check the value.

If you're talking directly to the server (no proxies etc) then this
should be the culprit.

As an aside, how long are you expecting the page code to take?

In HTML::Embperl there was an optEarlyHttpHeader setting for
EMBPERL_OPTIONS. I can't see that available for Embperl and I'm not sure
its even possible with the structural changes made along the way. I'm
sure someone else with more experience in 2.2 can enlighten us though.
