Coverage

Here you will find instructions for downloading the software and its related documentation.

[ TOC ]


Perl

Perl is probably already installed on your machine, but you should at least check the version you are using. It is highly recommended that you have at least Perl version 5.004. You can get the latest perl version from http://www.perl.com/ . Try the direct download link http://www.perl.com/pace/pub/perldocs/latest.html . You can get Perl documentation from the same location (although copious documentation is included in the downloaded Perl distribution).

[ TOC ]


CPAN Downloads

You can download most of the Perl modules from CPAN. There are many mirrors of this site. The main site's URL is http://cpan.org/.

You may want to search the Perl modules database by using http://search.cpan.org/.

Either use the search form, or type in the name of the package the module is distributed in. For example if you are looking for Apache::DumpHeaders, you can type: http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=Apache-DumpHeaders .

RPM: http://perl.apache.org/rpm/

mod_redundancy

mod_redundancy is a module that works with Apache webserver. It creates a Master/Slave Relationship between two physical webservers. The Slave takes over the IP-Address(es) and the Webservice(s) in case of a failure of the Master. One of the clues of this solution is, that the Redundancy/Failover-Configuration is made inside the Apache-Configfile.

The product is neither OSS, nor free :(

The homepage of mod_redundancy is http://www.ask-the-guru.com .
