FAQ
Hey folks,

The following URL talks about installing mod_perl on Win32 systems:
http://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/os/win32/install.html

...but the uwinnipeg.ca repo appears to no longer function. Looking for
alternatives, I found the following that talks about what happened to it:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=854074

Sad. =(

Does anyone know if any alternatives exist or is mod_perl simply no
longer available to Windows users of Apache?

    Are you using ActiveState Perl or a normal Perl, e.g. Strawberry Perl?
    If the latter, then you should be able to install mod_perl normally,
    with the cpan program.

    I don't know anything about ActiveState Perl, so I can't help you with
    the former. Somebody else probably will, if needed.

    Thanks Marius.

    I'm using ActivePerl but that doesn't really matter to me. mod_perl is
    what is important for this project, so if I have to switch to
    "Strawberry Perl" (never heard that term before, lol), then that should
    be fine.

    If any installation instructions exist for that I would be most grateful.

    Thank you in advance!

    Warm Regards,
    Jordan Michaels

    Strawberry Perl [0] is a Perl distribution "designed to be as close as
    possible to perl environment on UNIX systems". I assume it would run
    mod_perl.

    As for installation instructions, the document you linked in the first
    article includes them --- see the 'Building from sources section' [1]. I
    do not know if they are accurate / updated, but you can try them. These
    should work on any Perl distribution, including ActivePerl and
    Strawberry Perl.

    You may also look at Perl distributions that include mod_perl. For
    example, IndigoPerl comes with mod_perl preinstalled. Unfortunately,
    it's an ancient version of Perl (5.10). If you can live with that, it
    might be the easiest way to install mod_perl. There may be other
    distributions with mod_perl preinstalled.

    ActiveState perl does not differ all that much anymore from Strawberry Perl
    You can NOT install mod_perl via your cpan client because you'd need
    to also compile it against Apache, and you can't compile Apache with
    MinGW's compiler which is bundled with StrawberryPerl.

    The best way to go on Win32 is to download Steve Hay's precompiled
    binaries for Strawberry Perl which are available here; instructions
    are inside the archives:
    http://people.apache.org/~stevehay/

    Right, I was not aware of those precompiled binaries.
    Jordan, ignore my previous posts and use these binaries.
