I know you directed the first question at Robert but as a new user to
mod_mono, I do not find the configuration complicated once it is
working. The biggest problem I faced was that the documentation to get
a working mod_mono apache configuration is spread out throughout
http://www.mono-project.com/Mod_mono and you have to figure it out for
yourself. There is also a lot of out-dated information on that page for
old versions of mod_mono(see the Paths section, for instance). I think
the page just needs to be trimmed down and streamlined. But the apache
configuration itself is pretty straight forward, here is mine right now:
Allow from all
Alias /test "/www/mono-test"
AddMonoApplications test "/test:/www/mono-test"
MonoServerPath test /usr/local/bin/mod-mono-server2
As far as improvements, the one thing I would love to see is dynamic
recompilation of code behind files. It kind of sucks right now that I
have to restart my server through mod_mono Control Panel page for every
code update when I am just playing with stuff in a shell. I do not know
how feasible it would be to support this but it sure would be nice. If
this is a web.config issue, I would love to be pointed in the right
