Thanks a lot. Is good to know that this could be useful :)
I am slightly confused with the right way to sever through apache (without
the reverse proxy)  my understanding is that we need to install
https://github.com/spiritloose/mod_psgi before configuring the vhost with
PerlSetVar psgi_app /websites/myapp.example.com/app.pl

Is this correct? I am asking as the files in the repo are 3 years old and
there isn't a download package beside link the github download link ..

Well perhaps in first instance it is easier to tell users to use app.pl for
their app and then we can think about a smarter way to do it !

:)  The system setup took a while and it should be working fine. We wont'
be offering much support thou but of course simple guides and forums will
be available.

yes well we will use something else for the hosting signup with a better
CAPTCHA. I, for one, never get reCAPTCHA right !

Thanks in advance for letting me know about the mod_psgi
Best Regards
