Hello Kieren

 1) I was just asking where do I put the configuration as per the
article. Here's an extract from my prev email.
For example, there's a bunch of configuration in step 2 of FAST CGI
deployment (title of "2. Configure your application").
The problem I am having here is that there is no mention of WHERE should
the configuration should be put in.

2) No, I m not in sydney but yes, i am going to look into placing an
order through Amazon. Can you suggest a faster way (aside Sydney.pm) to
get a copy ? PDF purchase maybe?


You need to show us explicitly what you have tried so far for anyone to
be able to point out the error of your ways.

At the risk of seeming facetious, I suggest that you obtain the new
Catalyst book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1430223650 disclaimer: I
am the primary author), read chapter 5 on deployment, and once you
understand that you can patch the documentation for the benefit of
others.  This is how I got started writing docs for Catalyst, because I
was frustrated that the instructions were not easy and obvious to me,
and I needed something I knew I could follow.  The book follows the same
principle, which is why about a third of it is written by other people.
 Firstly it means I can safely forget what I already know and look it up
instead, and secondly I can stand on the shoulders of people who are
taller than me :) and look up what they have to say as well.

If you're close to Sydney,  Sydney.pm will be  having a book launch
(where there is a chance of winning a copy), probably on Tuesday the
28th of July.  I'll be sure to announce it on this list.
