I'm not a professional, so I haven't yet paid for a "dedicated server"*. Anyway, while I'm tooling away learning mason (which needs mod_perl), I'm thinking that I probably won't be allowed to write the httpd.conf myself (or will I?). Can I put all that stuff into an .htaccess file? Basically, can anyone enlighten me a bit here about caveats, before it's too late and I start committing myself to methods that I may not be able to use on the net?

* presuming that refers to an instance of apache, and not an actual box. Cause I can't pay for the whole box...

On a shared hosting plan, you won't be able to edit the httpd.conf, on a dedicated server or vps with root access you will be able to.

You can, but the type of directives you can put in there depends on the permissions your webhost give you (what they have set in the httpd.conf file). Your best bet would be to ask the exact webhost you plan to go with and ask them what configuration changes you can make with the .htaccess file, what do they allow?
