httpd.conf and mod_perl


I installed mod_perl to Apache2:

perl Makefile.PL MP_AP_PREFIX=/usr/local/apache2 MP_INST_APACHE2=1 && make && make install

I manually added
LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so
to the httpd.conf file.

I've read through the documentation, but I can not figure out what else to add to the httpd.conf file.

I need perl scripts to run when someone browses to a PL page on my website. Currently it just shows the actual PL code on the website.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Also, notice the following lines in my httpd.conf file:

LoadModule perl_module modules/mod_perl.so
PerlModule Apache2


I manually added those lines.
