Mod_perl/Apache question

by Anonymous Monk

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been doing a web portal with CGI. I would like to convert it to mod_perl. My understanding is that I need a version of Apache that is compiled with mod_perl. Is this true?

If I am in a hosted environment, is using mod_perl possible?

    Being a module, mod_perl is designed to be dynamically loaded into Apache. It's a simple matter of adding a few lines of configuration nowadays. Whether your hoster provides mod_perl, nobody but your hoster can tell you. Unless they're the cheapest of the cheap, chances are they do.

      Thank you
