No, you don't have to tell Apache where the Perl interpreter is located.
You add that to the top of the program in the shebang line...


When the program is called your OS should look at this line to know what
interpreter to use.

-Do I have to add anything to the httpd.conf file to link apache to
perl5.8.0?  Assuming I'm not using mod_Perl.

            -I tried to add mod_Perl but when I did the 'make install' in
the apache directory all the extra modules I've added in the original
instillation disappeared leaving me with only the default set of modules.
How can I add mod_Perl without affecting those modules already loaded?  Also
I noticed in the httpd.conf file there is no LoadModule lines although when
I do a 'httpd -l' I see all that is loaded.

No, Apache can interface with Perl as a CGI program, without

mod_perl is very useful though.

Please bear with me with these questions.

I have Apache 1.3.26 installed on a Solarisx86 machine with some 3rd
party modules.

I also have perl 5.8.0 installed.  To make this Perl installation
work with Apache do I need to have mod_Perl installed?
