Getting perl scripts to work with LAMP stack

August 30, 2013 3.5k views
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.

What's the first line of your perl script?

Where do you have Options +ExecCGI ?
The first line is #!/usr/bin/perl.

I allowed override in apache2.conf so .htaccess files would work. I have Options +ExecCGI in a .htaccess in my website's root.
Please pastebin your apache virtualhost config and your .htaccess file's contents.
