Apache2::Request is part of the libapreq package so this is the correct
list, but you could also ask this on the mod_perl list since
Apache2::Request is one of the primary modules for processing request

The closest correct handler is the PerlHandler, except that you referenced
Apache2::Request above, so I assume that you are using mod_perl2.   You
need to use PerlResponseHandler there instead of PerlHandler.

  PerlResponseHandler InterRed::UploadLimiter

See this link for a summary of the different handler phases.

For an example of using the UPLOAD_HOOK, see this article I wrote on

It may be a bit overkill since you are new to this stuff, but it
demonstrates the necessary configuration and a complete handler for
processing uploaded data.
