Has not been written, but it would look very much like the UnixInstallCookbook, using Using Apache With Cygwin (http://apache.dev.wapme.net/manual/cygwin.html) instead.

Matt - you have a working Cygwin apache set up - perhaps this is of use to you?

I'm currently working on such a setup. I started from WindowsInstallCookbook and so far came up to a point where I can easily switch between the following (working) configs :

  • Cygwin Perl & utils, no mod_perl
  • Cygwin utils, Active Perl, no mod_perl
  • Cygwin utils, Active Perl, mod_perl

Did not succeed with "Cygwin Perl & utils + mod_perl" yet though.

I'm still walking thru the details and face some kirks here and there. Mainly errors raised only when ModPerl is on. Once done, I could maybe help by providing my fresh experience here. As a delta against the WindowsInstallCookbook maybe ?

I'd be interested in your experiences, and a delta against WindowsInstallCookbook sounds like a good idea. If it's not too hard to set up and works well, it would be good to move to ModPerl as the default installation on Windows, since TWiki using CGI is quite slow on Windows.

No pb. But I just noticed Martin was actually heading this topic towards Apache-under-Cygwin + ModPerl and not Apache + Cygwin + ModPerl as I first thought. Should we move this to another topic ?

-- JeromeBouvattier - 22 Sep 2005

You are right, that was my intention...

... However, I'm no longer too concerned about CygWin - my conclusion is that IndigoPerl + GnuWin32 is a much easier to set up and is a less complex, more natural environment.

I'd wanted to bundle the config for IndigoPerl + GnuWin32 but was told that such pre-configs won't go in the distro.

Where on earth can you even get mod_perl for Cygwin Perl from? I was unable to find any useful references; I was hoping there would be some binaries to download from cygwin.com...

-- BarisAcar - 07 Feb 2006

AFAIK You can' simply get mod_perl for cygwin perl. And, to be honest, I am not sure whether it's worth the effort. Performance doesn't get a real boost because the "persistent" mod_perl processes keep exiting rather soon. It sort of "works", because apache is creating new ones at the same rate as the old ones die, but the performance benefit isn't that big. It is ok if you're doing it as a proof of concept, or (like me) for easy migration between Windows and Linux.

In case you want to go through all of it, I have written down a recipe at http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2005-08/msg00128.html which, according to a email I got from Thailand last year, has succeeded in at least one other case.
