Building Apache::ASP 2.57

Building a Web Server, for Windows


  • Microsoft Visual C++
    [we will use Visual Studio 98 / VC++ 6.0]
    [Visual Studio .NET will also work with the same instructions]
  • Perl
  • mod_perl
  • Notes:
    • When using the command-line (command-shell) with VC++, always set the Build Environment and update the System PATH to reflect the tools used in the build --> Guide: Working with the Command Shell


Original Instructions

  • ...\Apache-ASP-2.57\README

Our Configuration

  • Base Perl location : C:\www\perl
    [do not install to a directory that contains white spaces]
  • Base Apache2 location : C:\www\Apache2


A group of Perl modules need to be built and installed prior to the main Apache::ASP build process.

  • Download and unpack the following modules...
  • In the order above, from the source directory of each module, build and install each module...
    [read file README in each module dir for the official instructions]
    • ...\module> perl Makefile.PL
    • ...\module> nmake
    • ...\module> nmake test
    • ...\module> nmake install

Main Build Instructions

  • cd /d C:\build\Apache-ASP-2.57
  • > perl Makefile.PL
  • > nmake
  • > nmake test
  • > nmake install

Apache2 Setup for Apache::ASP

  • Edit \www\Apache2\conf\httpd.conf

    PerlModule Apache::ASP
    <Files ~ (\.asp)>
       SetHandler perl-script
       PerlHandler Apache::ASP
       PerlSetVar Global .
       PerlSetVar StateDir C:/tmp/asp

  • Add index.asp to the DirectoryIndex field of httpd.conf
  • Create directory C:\tmp
    [Apache::ASP will not work without this dir]

Testing Apache::ASP

This will create an example ASP file, hello.asp

  • Create hello.asp in your webroot (DocumentRoot) directory

       $Response->Write("Congratulations, you have successfully installed Apache::ASP");

  • Access http://localhost/hello.asp
