mod_perl is an Apache module that greatly speeds up Perl CGI applications by pre-loading the Perl interpreter and compiling Perl scripts only once - it can be used with TWiki with no code changes. It is already used by some TWiki sites on both Unix/Linux and Windows. For more background, see See also ModPerlProxied for configuration with the Advanced Extranet Server. (

For cookbook guides to setting up mod_perl see ModPerlUnix or ModPerlWindows/WindowsModPerlInstallCookbook. Some detail mentioned in either may apply to the other environment as well. If you have trouble, read both topics. See also SelectiveModPerl for instructions on how to enable mod_perl for only certain scripts.


A lot of older material has been removed; if you are researching a problem, and are really stuck, you might try looking back at previous versions of this topic
