Apache's mod_fastcgi makes Perl applications run much faster and scale well to heavy usage. Using Kwiki with mod_fastcgi is a piece of cake.

First you need is an Apache server built with mod_fstcgi support. See for more information.

Then install a Kwiki site following the normal KwikiInstallation procedures.

Finally add something like this to your Apache configuration (The example is for named virtual host):

<VirtualHost *> ServerName DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/data/kwiki AddHandler fastcgi-script cgi DirectoryIndex index.cgi <Location /> Options ExecCGI </Location> </VirtualHost>

That's it! You'll get an instant performance boost.

You can switch from the standard CGI installation to mod_fastcgi anytime you want.
