There are changes in httpd 2.4 debian 8 vs httpd 2.2 in debian 7 that 
are "above" just getting a mod_perl that works with apache 2.4 where 
your application might need some code changes to support both.

For example, paraphrasing a post I wrote a few days ago, if you look at and, you'll see 
how the changes in httpd 2.4 rippled down to MP and how I implemented 
$c->client_ip instead of $c->remote_ip.

The documentation at about the 
changes is a good starting point.  Beyond that, I would look at error 
logs to see if you have any specific issues to comment on.
