Subject [users@httpd] Perl or mod_perl
Date Tue, 07 Dec 2004 18:34:14 GMT
I have a Windows 2000 machine with Apache 2.0.52 and Tomcat 5.0.29 (with 
mod_jk2_2.0.43.dll) working just fine together.  I even added PHP5 and 
that works just fine being served from Apache.

Now, I started by adding a hitcounter.cgi to my cgi-bin foler and 
created a .shtml file to execute it.  I googled, used the Apache User 
archives, and it finally dawned on me that I need Perl in order to 
execute this .cgi file .... is this correct?

So, I'd like to add ... so after doing some research it 
seems like there are a few choices for Perl with Apache2 on a Windows 
platform.    Does anyone have a peference?   Should I use ActivePerl?   
What about the "Perl-5.8-win32-bin.exe" program I downloaded from, will this work?  I actually downloaded this and installed it 
onto my system.  It came up with an application to modify my httpd.conf 
file, but I'd rather do that on my own.   

So, what is the recommended Perl binary/module for Windows?   How easy 
is it to add (because PHP) took 5 minutes to do.   Also, please consider 
that eventually I'll be moving Apache/Tomcat/PHP/and Perl to SuSe 9.1 
Linix eventually.   At that point, I'll just install the standard Perl 
language from installation.
