If you already have Apache installed on your machine, you will have to rebuild it with mod_perl . You can get the source for both Apache and mod_perl from http://www.apache.org/ . (You can also get mod_perl from CPAN.) If there isn't already an Apache httpd in the Apache source tree, you must build one. Then build mod_perl as directed in the INSTALL file for the mod_perl distribution.
As we've mentioned,
allows you to hook in Perl
modules as handlers for various stages of a request.
By default, however, the only callback hook that is enabled
The mod_perl Makefile replaces the httpd in the Apache source tree with a Perl-enabled one. When you install mod_perl , it not only installs the new httpd into your system area, it also installs several Perl modules including Apache::Registry.% perl Makefile.PL PERL_LOG=1
At the time of this writing, both Apache and mod_perl are being ported to Win32. However, mod_perl will only run with the standard Perl Win32 port (not ActiveState's). The INSTALL.win32 file contains the instructions for installing mod_perl under Win32.
