Edit the file products/variables.txt, find the entry for SERVER_NAME and
remove the http:// part, then restart Interchange.

You can run Interchange on the newest threaded perl versions (yours is
new enough) without problems but you'll still take about a 30%
performance hit.  Depending on which version of IC you are running you
may have to set the MINIVEND_FORCE_THREADS environment variable when
starting IC, though.

If you want to run IC on an unthreaded perl then you need to compile
your own.  Feel free to drop into irc.icdevgroup.org #interchange and
I'll give you few pointers on that if you want.
