Do you see anything wrong with using mod_perl to turn apache into a "all-in-one" server (handle email, ftp and web requests all with Apache).
Does this idea interest anyone? I've been thinking about doing this myself and can't think of anything bad. It would run on any OS that supports Apache, which is obviously a stable server and it would be a lot easier to manage virtual accounts and logs.
Any thoughts? Has anyone else tried anything like this?
Also I forgot to mention that you could run each service on it's own using apache by simply creating seperate config files for each service. So the "one goes down they all go down" comment is taken care of.
