How can I manually create IIS script mappings for ActivePerl?


To manually create IIS script mappings for ActivePerl:

  1. Go to Control Panel | Administrative Tools
  2. Open Internet Information Services
  3. Right-click the Default web site and select Properties.
  4. In the Properties dialog-box select the 'home Directory' tab.
  5. Click on the configuration button in the Application Configuration dialog.
  6. Click on the 'Add' button.

In the Add/Edit dialog-box, ensure the following settings are correct:

  • for executable, put in C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe "%s" %s ( adjust this if you have installed Perl to a different directory )
  • for the extension, put in 'pl'
  • for Verbs, select 'Limit to:' and put in 'GET,HEAD,POST'
  • select 'Script Engine' and 'Check that file exists'

For PerlIs ISAPI support, repeat these step using
'C:\Perl\bin\perlis.dll' for the executable field and
'plx' for the extension.
