Subject Re: cannot LoadModule mod_perl on apache2.2
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2009 18:08:16 GMT
Andre and Randy,
thank you for your advice.
I re-installed active perl 5.8.9 and this fixed the starting apache problem: 
Apache started OK with mod_perl
I still face the problem of running perl scripts.
When I point the browser to my 2 line, the browser opens the Download File dialog.
When I select open it fires a MS shell window for a second and closes the window.
Here is the below:

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, World."; 
Here are several lines from httpd.conf:
#AddHandler cgi-script .pl .ip # I tried each of these lines separately - same effect
SetHandler perl-script    # these instructions are on the global level, same effect inside
a directory
<Directory "C:/myScripts">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI 
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Thank you for your help,

I'd highly appreciate any help/advice on the following.
I installed mod_perl 2 on Apache 2.2 using the following:
>ppm install
Install 'mod_perl' version 2.0.4 in ActivePerl
Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Apache2\typemap
Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Apache2\Access\
It was the first time install, so I don't think I need any renaming. Right?
I can see the in the Apache/modules directory on windows XP.
I have 2 lines in the http.conf:
LoadFile "C:/Perl/bin/perl58.dll"
LoadModule perl_module modules/
Apache doesn't want to start unless I comment the LoadModule line.
I don't see any specific error in the error.log (I think this log only starts after Apache
Any advice?
Thank you,
