Hi, I've just done this exact thing! Here's what I had to do:

First, read as many docs as you can get your hands on. Start at
http://perl.apache.org Some of the following instructions are tailored
from the docs to fit my machine, YMMV.

1.Install mod_perl and Apache
2.Put these in your http.conf:

Perlrequire /home/httpd/etc/conf/perl-startup.pl
PerlWarn    On
PerlModule  Apache::DBI

3. Put these things in the perl-startup.pl file

#################################################
# The order of these is important! (See example #
# in Apache::DBI source directory)              #
#################################################
                      #
use Apache::Registry; # =>  For stuff in "/perl" location
use Apache::Status;   # =>  For "/perl-status"
use Apache::DBI;      # =>  Persistent DB Connections
                      #
#######################

4. Set up apache to run your mod_perl scripts as registry scripts:


  <Location /perl>
    SetHandler perl-script
    PerlHandler Apache::Registry
    Options ExecCGI
    allow from all
    PerlSendHeader On
  </Location>

Good Luck!
