We'll assume you have installed into your perl distribution...
AND... that you have mod_perl installed (if you haven't - you need to
find a binary, check:

The simplest way (IMHO) is to use this:

  # General server-wide ASP enable
  <Files *.asp>
    SetHandler  perl-script
    PerlModule  Apache::ASP
    PerlHandler Apache::ASP
    PerlSetVar  Global .
    PerlSetVar  StateDir /tmp/asp

Now every file called anything.asp will be passed to the ASP handler and
parsed before being served. Full instructions at:

A word of caution - apache ASP is based on the Perl programming language
and is heavily object-oriented. It will require a certain effort to
learn how to use it if you are not a programmer (this is way more than
building HTML pages...)
