Loading the mod_perl Apache Module embeds a copy of the Perl interpreter inside the Apache Web Server. mod_perl allows you to speed up existing CGI scripts and also extend your web server in ways previously unavailable to most webmasters.

Installation

Connect to your Virtual Private Server via SSH, su to root, and do the following:

  1. Install the mod_perl Apache module:

    # vinstall mod_perl
  2. Add the following line to the top of your web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf).

    LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so
