      You need to have mod_perl activated. It may be that the default
      web server configuration does not have mod_perl loaded.
      Check your httpd.conf & /etc/init.d/httpd script to see how mod_perl
      gets started. In my redhat 7.2 /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, it looked
      something like:

      <IfDefine HAVE_PERL>
      AddModule mod_perl.c

      If you just delete the IfDefine tags, it will just always
      load mod_perl always. Note that at least the 7.2 redhat apache has
      XML/expat compiled it, which will conflict with XML::Parser
      modules ( like XML::XSLT ), so if you need to get those working,
      you will need to compile your own apache, with a ./configure like:

      ./configure \
      --prefix=/usr/local/apache \
      --activate-module=src/modules/perl/libperl.a \
      --enable-module=ssl \
      --enable-module=proxy \
      --enable-module=so \

      See the make_httpd/build_httpds.sh script in the distribution
      for the context in which this command would get run in
      building apache/mod_per/mod_ssl.
