1. Install Perl

2. Install Apache & config httpd:

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
Add ExecCGI to this line. The line should now look like the following:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
Next, search for the following:
#AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
Uncomment this line by removing the # in front of the line, and add a .pl to the end of the line. The new line should look like this:
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

3. Start the server, and check the server environment:


There should be some  environment variables like  DOCUMENT_ROOT/PATH/SCRIPT_FILENAME….

4. Drop a Perl( into the server:

print "Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8\n\n";
print "<phtml><head><title>Learning Perl</title></head><body>";
print "<h1>PerlPage</h1>";
print "<form action='' method='post'>";
print "<input type=file name=='file'>";
print "<input type=text name='comment' size=20 value=''>";
print "<input type=submit name=enter value='Upload'>";
print "<form>";
print "</body></html>";

you can just drop this file in your ApacheHome/cgi-bin or your site if you have configured the httpd.conf;

5. check the Perl page:
