Subject Re: mod_perl2 and PHP
Date Sat, 06 Aug 2005 17:24:10 GMT
i'm not a fan of php and mod_perl running in the same apache instance

my setup right now uses lighttpd as a frontend proxy + static file  
server on port 80.

anything mp related is proxypassed to a mp2 bound to localhost on  
port 8000
anything php related is proxypassed to a lighttpd server bound to  
localhost on port 8100 that calls processes php as a cgi though fcgi  
--even though its a phpcgi, the speed is comparable to apache and  
mod_python because lighttpd has way less overhead

the only caveat on this setup, is that you can't run mod_security to  
filter the php stuff on lighttpd (unless you run apache as the  
frontend -- but its not as good at proxying or serving static files  
as lighttpd).

i've been trying to tweak this setup for speed and security - apache  
is built to handle things right, lighttpd is built to handle things  
fast.
