Subject Re: SV: [mp2+Win32] Frustration over Apache 2.0/ 2.2 restart failure
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2007 08:31:10 GMT
Hello Henrik,

Yes we have conversed earlier and shared the pain on this same point. My 
FreeBSD installations were relatively painless in comparison to the 
Win32 counterparts.

The sad truth is that my clients are more comfortable with Windows OS, 
and I have to support our products on this platform. It's either I get 
modperl to work, or we have a product overhaul to move over to .NET 
(which I hope will not happen).

It's quite strange that nobody else has this problem. It's definately a 
critical operational concern. I am starting to suspect that Perl/ 
modperl is quietly exclusive to the non-Windows world.

I hope someone in this community can prove me wrong...
