Setting up your first Apache/Mod Perl/Oracle Web Page

Jay Strauss

College of DuPage Bldg M Rm 165g


Want to produce dynamic web pages from the content stored in your Oracle database (or any database)? A little confused on the pieces of technology needed, and how to connect the dots? Come to our discussion and learn which pieces of technology you can use and how to put them together.

We will go through the basics of compiling, configuring, and installing Perl, Oracle client software, DBI, DBD-Oracle, Mod_Perl, and the Apache web server. Additionally, you'll see how to connect to, display, and update data stored in the database, all from your web browser.

Small and large companies alike use these technologies, to build both internal (intranet) and external (internet) database applications. The learning curve is shallow, but the applications are robust.
