Getting perl scripts to work with LAMP stack

  • Posted August 30, 2013

I followed the instructions from Perl scripts are only displaying the source code in my browser. The scripts are chmodded properly.

I have: Options +ExecCGI AddHandler cgi-handler .pl in a .htaccess. What else should I do? I’m relatively new to using unmanaged servers.

Please pastebin your apache virtualhost config and your .htaccess file’s contents.

The first line is #!/usr/bin/perl. <br> <br>I allowed override in apache2.conf so .htaccess files would work. I have Options +ExecCGI in a .htaccess in my website’s root.

What’s the first line of your perl script? <br> <br>Where do you have <code>Options +ExecCGI </code>?
