I installed activeperl and made sure it works.
I can double click on a perl script and it runs.
Now I'm trying to learn IIS.
But I am really not sure where to start.
I could install apache and use it but I think I should take the time and learn IIS as well.
Here is what I know
Under "Application Configuration" under "Mappings" tab there is an entry [.pl C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe "%s" %s GET, HEAD, POST] that active perl added
I added a file test.pl to the c:\inetpub\wwwroot directory but when I point a web browser at it is says it is not found any other htm files I add to the directory work just fine.
my test.pl looks as follows
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello world";
and when executed looks as expected
It doesn't appear to be executing from IIS
I'm not sure where I need to put the perl scripts actually. In apache I know I needed them in the cgi-bin directory.
Ok I figured it out :-)
In the "Web Service Extentions" area I found the "Perl CGI Extention" was prohibited I just changed that to Allowed and walla everything works now :-)
