Well I am trying to get Perl CGI's to work with Apache and Im stumped. I edited the http.conf file to remove the hash # before the Perl module and restarted the Apache server service and its acting like the handler for Perl is missing. Is there something else I need to do other than enable the Perl module with Apache?
By the way it is all running "locally" on my laptop so it should be easy to troubleshoot. I also disabled my firewall on Windows XP thinking that maybe the firewall was conflicting while not connected to internet.
Trying to get this up and running to strengthen my Perl CGI skills. A co-worker suggested using XAMPP, but why would I need to install XAMPP if Apache already has Perl support. Seems like XAMPP is just a bundle to cover all, when I just need Perl CGI support.
Is XAMPP really the way to go vs an Apache install with edited config file to enable Perl Module?
