When building server side applications for the Web, independently of the language used (Java, PHP, Perl, etc), a lot of time is spent writing embedded HTML code and dealing with the fact that HTTP is a stateless protocol. SPFC allows you to write HTML forms like you write a Java GUI.
Apache Toolbox provides a means to easily compile Apache (IPv4/6) SSL, PHP(v3/v4), MySQL, Jakarta, a large number of modules (61 3rd party modules and 36 default Apache modules, static or as DSOs), and GD libraries with PNG+JPEG+Freetype2+zlib support. It is fully customizable and menu-driven. Everything is compiled from source, and wget is used to download any missing modules. It can also check for RPMs that might cause problems and create an RPM with your selections.
Apache::ASP provides an Active Server Pages port to the Apache Web Server with Perl as the host scripting language. Apache::ASP allows a developer to create dynamic Web applications with session management and embedded Perl code. There are also many powerful extensions, including XML taglibs, XSLT rendering, and new events not originally part of the ASP API.
Apache::Session is a persistence framework whose purpose is to provide session management to Web developers. It is designed to work with Apache and mod_perl, but it does not depend on them and will work with any Web server. This module provides a set of classes that give the developer maximum functionality. Session data can be stored in a database, flat files, or shared memory.
The APC Action Applications (APC-AA) provide an easy automated publishing environment for non-profit websites. Features include 'Usenet-like' sharing of articles between sites, automated publishing of press releases, bibliographic information, who's who, event calendars, and more for multiple sites, and runs on Apache PHP/MySQL, with an optional plugin to store authentication information in LDAP. The software is also multi-lingual, and supports multiple character sets.
Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
