mod_perl 2 and Apache 2 ... help!
Hi, I have been up all night trying to get something, anything at all to work with mod_perl 2 and Apache 2.

I have followed the instructions exactly as far as I can tell. However, they do appear a bit ambiguous.

I have tried a fresh build of Apache 2, a binary installation, and the Apache 2 server included with Redhat 8 that already has mod_perl installed. In all cases, accessing a simple .pl script from the browser just prints the source code to the screen.

This is what I put in my httpd.conf:


LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so

PerlModule Apache2


If I cause an error page to load up, it tells me that the mod_perl 1.99 is loaded at the string at the bottom. So I am guessing it is at least loading.

So my question is, what am I doing wrong? What is the minimal steps I am missing to get a simple .pl script to execute when I load it in the browser?

I'd steer clear of Apache2/mod_perl2 for a while. There are lots of people having problems as mod_perl2 is not stable yet.

Here's a page to look at though...
