calzonia has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
My site is currently running a lot of Perl CGI scripts using a custom templating system. (LAMP-based). The website also has several thousand SHTML files containing static content.
I would like to upgrade to a more robust CMS system,
There are way too many scripts to re-write. What is a relatively painless way to move to a CMS without re-writing all of the Perl scripts?
Are there script converters that will facilitate such a move?
Which CMS is appropriate given this starting point?
Is it required for the CMS to be Perl-based, or does this even matter? i.e. is there a way to run Perl scripts from within Joomla?
thanks in advance.
