Hi everyone, has anyone installed mod_perl for Apache 2.4 on DSM7.1. Are there binaries somewhere?

Have you tried running Perl scripts from WebStation with an Apache backend? I've found it works with '.cgi' file extensions but not '.pl'. Depends on what's defined in httpd.conf or referenced files.

Looking in /usr/local/etc/apache24/conf/httpd24.conf both these are enabled:
Bash:
LoadModule cgid_module modules/mod_cgid.so
LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so

From /usr/local/etc/apache24 I run this command grep -R cgi * | grep .conf (looking for 'conf' files containing 'cgi') and this is the result, exc. the 'denied' access files.
Bash:
grep: conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf:<FilesMatch "\.(cgi|shtml|phtml|php)$">
conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf:<Directory "/srv/http/cgi-bin">
conf/httpd24.conf:LoadModule cgid_module modules/mod_cgid.so
conf/httpd24.conf:LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so
conf/httpd24.conf:<IfModule cgid_module>

You should be able to work with this and find the best place to install your Perl CGI scripts.

Thanks for your effort - I think this is a good emergency workaround.
However, the Perl control capabilities of the Apache are lost and the performance is much slower using an external interpreter.

It was unfortunately not possible to compile a mod_perl.so from sources because the APXS does not reflect the Perl installation on Synology - hence the question about the binaires.

Anyway - thanks a lot
