Apache web server is better to use with Perl because:
  • Apache web server is open-source
    (you can customize it to your CGI needs, Interface Perl with a wider array or open-source applications
    which provide more benefits or scope, get access to more documentation and support more easily)
  • It is available for multiple platforms. (speaks for itself)
  • Apache is easily scalable as compared to IIS
    (you can run it and Perl on lesser resource specs and still acheive good performance)
  • It isn't Microsoft
  • It's free. And so is Perl.

Haven given all these general points about why HTTPD is better than IIS which may or may not completely relate
to CGI itself. Please note that I have never benchmarked the 2 web servers on any tests (including CGI Perl or mod_perl). And you may think I am biased. That's probably because I am. But for good reason.

I guess that running Perl with Apache on Linux/UNIX is a good match cause of the nature of the Perl API. But there is no reason to not run Perl on a Microsoft box. Perl can run on anything. Apache just knows more about Perl than IIS. I could be completely wrong in any of my points and I am not qualified to comment really. But still. I just had to reply :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
