Enable mod_perl
2011/05/07
  Enable mod_perl and makes Perl script be fast.

[1] Configure PerlRun mode.
[root@www ~]#
yum -y install mod_perl


[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/perl.conf


# line 17: uncomment

PerlSwitches -w

# line 26: uncomment

PerlSwitches -T

# line 32-38: uncomment like follows

Alias /perl /var/www/perl
<Directory /var/www/perl>
# directory for mod_perl environment

   SetHandler perl-script
# looks all files as perl-scripts under this directory

#   AddHandler perl-script .cgi
# if set specific files, use this line and make the line above comment

#   PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
  
PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::PerlRun
# set PerlRun mode

   PerlOptions +ParseHeaders
   Options +ExecCGI
</Directory>

# line 44-50: uncomment ( this is for the status of mod_perl )

<Location /perl-status>
   SetHandler perl-script
   PerlResponseHandler Apache2::Status
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
   Allow from
10.0.0.0/24
# IP address you allow

</Location>

[root@www ~]#
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart

Stopping httpd:
[  OK  ]

Starting httpd:
[  OK  ]

[2] Create a perl script and make sure if it works normally.
Furthermore, it's possible to see the status of mod_perl at "http://(hostname or IP address)/perl-status".
 
[3] Configure Registry mode.
This mode makes Perl script be more fast than PerlRun mode, but be careful to write scripts.
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/perl.conf


Alias /perl /var/www/perl
<Directory /var/www/perl>
   SetHandler perl-script
#   AddHandler perl-script .cgi
   PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
# uncomment

#
   PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::PerlRun
# make it comment

   PerlOptions +ParseHeaders
   Options +ExecCGI
</Directory>

[root@www ~]#
/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
