[swish-e] Sound advice for RHEL4 install

From: Douglas Fox <>

I have been testing Swish-e on a Windows machine for a couple of months while I put 
together a small indexing project. It is great software and I'm really pleased, especially with 
the support for meta tags and templating. (I'm using SWISH::TemplateHTMLTemplate to 
create a custom search form and results list.)

I'm now ready to move the project to our Redhat (RHEL 4) / Apache production web server. It 
already has Perl and mod_perl installed.

I would very much appreciate any good advice for those contemplating putting Swish-e on a  
RHEL server. I have looked at the the documentation for Linux installs in general, and noted 
the advice on use of the -R option when compiling in Redhat. But for instance, should I use 
the existing Perl support, or install another Perl? Any special pitfalls to avoid?

Many thanks for any advice.
