Subject Apache / mod_perl / Perl under Windows
Date Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:55:40 GMT

Can someone help clearing my confusion (again) as to what kind of Apache / mod_perl / Perl

combination works under Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) ?

I thank Steve Hay many times for providing numerous versions of mod_perl for numerous 
versions of platforms and numerous versions of Active and Strawberry Perl.

And I finally managed to have the following combination working under Windows server 2008

64-bit R2 :
- Apache 2.2 from :

- ActivePerl from :

- mod_perl 2.0.8 from :

but before that, I spent most of a day fighting with various versions of all the above and

obscure Windows error messages ranging from "the application is not a Win32 application" 
to "the Service started but terminated unexpectedly" to .. nothing.

One problem was (I suppose, but finally I am totally unsure of) that I initially tried to

use a Strawberry Perl (which seems to tell me that it is compiled with gcc), but could 
never find an Apache 2.2 binary similarly compiled with gcc.
Anyway, I am quite confused now again as to what must match what.

Grateful for any insight.
