Slash handles dynamism 2 ways. One is really through static .shtml files (if
you don't count SSI as dynamic) that are generated by the .pl files, and the
other is by hitting the .pl files themselves. example, go to any slashsite's
index.pl, topics.pl, users,pl and compare it to index.shtml, topics.shtml and
so on. So don't let non-static sites scare you. Just think of it as static
*for each user* :)
I would have to see your httpd.conf to know why apache gives that error. You
can also run /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl -h for info on doing syntax
config test. It's very helpful. I see no reason slash wouldn't run on 2.2,
that's what my site runs on (but I didn't install the OS, I don't own the
hardware). If you want some help, just tar up your configs for apache, slash,
and a small doc what you've done and mail to me. I can probably get back to
you wthinin 24 hours.
