Perl:
- Dynamic mod_perl (DSO):
+ Any stable version of Perl currently in support by the Perl community,
+ as described in recent Perl distributions' "perlpolicy.pod" document.
- + prefork mpm:
- - Perl version 5.6.1 or higher
+ Newer Perl versions may work with this version of mod_perl. If not,
+ the svn version likely will (see above).
- + non-prefork mpm:
- - Perl with ithreads support version 5.8.0 or higher
-
- Static mod_perl:
-
- + prefork mpm:
- - Perl with ithreads support version 5.6.1 or higher
- - Perl without ithreads support version 5.8.2 or higher
-
- + non-prefork mpm:
- - Perl with ithreads support version 5.8.0 or higher
+ Many older Perl versions also work with this version of mod_perl:
+ Perls back to version 5.8.2 (and possibly earlier in some build
+ configurations) are currently believed to work, but this is not
+ guaranteed to be the case, either now or in the future.
