Can't find mod_perl

I am trying to update a version of XAMPP 1.7.7 to 5.6.34. Someone else did the original install and used mod_perl.so. I cannot find the mod_perl.so in the 5.6.34 installation directory. My understanding is that it should be there. I also checked 7.x.x versions of XAMPP and it was not there either. The code uses Apache:ASP which I believe requires perl_mod - how can I get this upgrade working?

No. Xampp does not deliver mod perl.

Here is the link https://perl.apache.org/download/index.html where you can find mod-Perl.

Hmm, not very helpful unless you are looking for the source to compile yourself.

If you start there, click on Binary mod_perl distributions, then click on Win32 mod_perl 2.0 binary distributions, you end up at this page: https://perl.apache.org/docs/2.0/os/win ... e_packages

Now let's look at those choices.
IndigoPerl, the last version of it is based on Perl 5.10 and from 2009. Since Apache 2.4.0 didn't come out till 2012, any mod_perl in it is for Apache 2.2 and will not work with 2.4.

Next on the list is Xampp, we know that's a no go.

Then DeveloperSide.NET, their latest download has Apache 2.4.16 VC11 32bit, workable so far, could be loaded in any Apache 2.4 vc11-15, but there's no mod_perl.

That leaves zangweb, and that 404s.

Steve Hay is the one of the folks that got mod_perl working for Apache 2.4. He's one of the mod_perl dev's hence the people.apache.org url. The binaries are linked to Apache Lounge builds (what's in Xampp) and is the only option available today.
