Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to start perl script using FCGID module
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2018 13:20:28 GMT
The difference between FastCGI and regular CGI is that regular CGI runs the
program directly and FastCGI is expected to run continuously and handle
requests. If you want to use FastCGI in Perl, you might want to start with
a library like PSGI or a framework like Catalyst.

Hi,

I am trying to run a perl script using fcgid module.
I have loaded mod_fcgid module.

I have created a directory in apache called fcgi-bin and added the below
snippet to my httpd.conf file.
<Directory '/home/ananya/apache-http-connector/apache-2.4.29/fcgi-bin/'>
AddHandler fcgid-script .pl
AllowOverride All
Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
Require all granted
</Directory>

And have also added -
ScriptAlias /fcgi-bin/
'/home/ananya/apache-http-connector/apache-2.4.29/fcgi-bin/'

My perl program is a simple hello world programme as follows-

#!/usr/bin/perl
print("Content-Type: text/plain\n\n");
print "Hello world";

But the problem that I am facing is that the 'Hello World' output is
getting printed in my Apache error logs and not in the browser as a perl
script. Can someone please help me out with this?

Thanks
Ananya
