Embedded Perl for Apache

The Apache/Perl integration project brings together the full power of
the Perl programming language and the Apache HTTP server.

With mod_perl, it is possible to write Apache modules entirely in Perl.
The persistent interpreter embedded in the server avoids the overhead
of starting an external interpreter and the penalty of Perl start-up

Note that you do not need mod_perl to run perl scripts via the common
gateway interface (CGI). mod_perl enables you to run Perl scripts in an
embedded interpreter if the additional performance is needed, but may
require modifications to the scripts.


To load the module into Apache, run the command "a2enmod perl" as root.

To learn about the configuration, the best reference unequivocally is

For porting 1.0 applications to 2.0, the page
http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/user/porting/compat.html should give
the required information.

Most mod_perl handlers use the perl-script handler. Scripts can run in
"mod_perl mode" (preconfigured for URLs starting with /perl/) or "perl
cgi mode" (preconfigured for URLs starting /cgi-perl). Plain CGI
scripts can be run via /cgi-bin/. In all these cases, the script would
be placed inside the /srv/www/cgi-bin/ directory. Refer to
/etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_perl.conf about this configuration.
