Configuring Apache for Perl
A short note on configuring Apache for Perl
Apache and Perl

Install ActiveState Perl (i.e. 5.10)

[Check] Add Perl to the PATH environment variable

[Check] Create Perl file extension association

Activating CGI

Using Notepad (or other text editor) open httpd.conf (should be start-menu shortcut "Apache HTTP Server 2.2 > Configure Apache Server > Edit the Apache httpd.conf Configuration File") and search for Options Indexes FollowSymLinks (about line 190) when you find it add ExecCGI to the end so it looks like Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI

Enabling CGI in any directory

If you want to use CGI outside the C:/Apache2_2/cgi-bin/ ScriptAliased directory, you will need to uncomment the following line: #AddHandler cgi-script .cgi becomes AddHandler cgi-script .cgi (remove the #) I also added .pl behind .cgi so 'perl' extension is also treated as cgi files.
