Description:O’Reilly, quite possibly the most enlightened publisher on the planet, put out Practical mod_perl in 2003. Now that it’s 2006, do they update it and put out an unnecessary 2nd edition at a higher price to boost sales? No—they release the book online for free! And they do a good job of it, too, offering HTML and PDF versions and putting the source code up. To top it off, they use one of the milder CC licenses. And of course, since it was originally published in print, the quality is exceptional, even more so considering the price.

Thanks to the authors for submitting this.

From the book:

mod_perl is an Apache module that builds the power of the Perl programming language directly into the Apache web server. With mod_perl, CGI scripts run as much as 50 times faster, and you can integrate databases with the server, write Apache modules in Perl, embed Perl code directly into Apache configuration files, and even use Perl in server-side includes. With mod_perl, Apache is not only a web server, it is a complete programming platform.
Getting mod_perl running is easy. Tweaking mod_perl and Apache for the best performance and reliability is much more difficult. This book is about building mod_perl, using it, programming with it, and optimizing it.
