I can install a non-threaded perl, but I'm wondering about mod_perl --
it is already installed on the server, so I assume I would have to
recompile/reinstall to use the non-threaded perl. Is that the case?
I would prefer to leave things as "vanilla" as possible (for easy
security patching and for my Plesk control panel), but I need to balance
that against performance considerations.
I see my options as:
- Leave the system as-is (take the threaded performance hit)
- Install non-threaded perl and disable mod_perl for my domain (is there
a performance hit for not using mod_perl with Interchange?)
- bite the bullet and tackle both perl and mod_perl
- any other ideas I'm missing? Would mod_interchange be of any help for
Do any experts have advice on the best way to proceed?
