This chapter provides an indepth mod_perl 2.0 installation coverage.

Requires at least Perl version 5.6.0. But we strongly suggest to use at least version 5.6.1, since 5.6.0 is quite buggy.

Require at least Perl version 5.8.0 with ithreads support built-in. That means that it should report:
% perl5.8.0 -V:useithreads -V:usemultiplicity useithreads='define'; usemultiplicity='define';
If that's not what you see rebuild Perl with
