As Carlos's question suggests that he might be quite new to all this,
it's probably worth pointing out that for simple, low-volume
applications there is no requirement to load any language-specific
module into apache. All one needs is mod_cgi (or mod_cgid) to get
started and then it's pretty trivial to run scripts in any chosen
language supported by the O/S.

Of course, Daniel's advice to embed the interpreter through mod_lua (or
mod_python, mod_perl, mod_ruby, ...) is sound for larger,
single-language applications and there are alternatives like mod_fcgi
which can get close to the best of both worlds. But for someone
starting out and just looking at a proof of concept it is likely the
case that the simplicity of mod_cgi(d) would make the easiest starting
