Re: Setting up Apache2 with mod_perl and Apache2::AuthCookieLDAP

Yeah thanks for all of that but really my real goal was just to get
Apache2::AuthCookieLDAP working.

Plack::Middleware::Auth::Basic supports LDAP auth:

Personally I prefer Cygwin Apache because all of the pathing then can be
POSIX-like and can easily port to Linux systems later on. Plus Cygwin's
Perl is, IMHO, far superior to ActiveState.

The two issues are actually separate. There's nothing making you use ActiveState Perl to run a PSGI app front-ended by native Windows Apache. PSGI apps behind a reverse proxy simply present an HTTP interface to the proxy. As far as the proxy server knows, the app providing that interface could be built in F#.

(Why F#? Another new favorite tool, and about as different from Perl as you can get. :) )

However I had set up Apache2 as a Windows service before so I know it's
doable. I just forget how to do it! ;-) I thought it was just to specify
-k or perhaps -DNO_DETACH or something like that...

Did you try -F?
