[Mono-list] Xsp in standalone amd mod_mono

Well, for one, the mod_mono module expects to see /tmp/mod_mono_server,
which is created by mod-mono-server.exe, not xsp.exe. If you did not chmod
the /tmp/mod_mono_server file, you will get Service Unavailable. Best
thing to do is script the mod-mono-server startup so that you pause for a
couple seconds after the .exe returns, then chmod the file in the script.

Also, unless they have got mod-mono-server.exe to recognize, drop, and
reload changed assembly DLLs, you will need to restart mod-mono-server.exe
each time you change an assembly DLL that the server has loaded. If you
don't, you will get some truly weird errors from your ASP.NET pages.

If you are serving ONLY ASPX pages on this server, then you don't need
Apache at all; just set up XSP to server port 80 and off you go (akin to
Java servlets).
