As I see the topic:

You _may_ run one process per vhost, but even with very low traffic
site it is better to run more than one worker.

I think the most common setup for Dancer app is to run it with some
Plack-capable server (like Starman) behind some reverse proxy (like


plackup -E deployment -s Starman --workers=10 -p 5001 -a bin/app.pl

You may choose suitable count of workers.

It is possible for static pages, but then why to use Dancer at all?

When you need some dynamic features (like sessions), you are in trouble.

Kõike hääd,
