Enable Perl and MySql on XAMPP



Hi Alonzo,

The usual configuration must allow you to do that. It applies when your MySQL server is in the same box. You can establish connection to MySQL database using the DBI Perl module, an abstraction mechanism by which Perl can interact with the MySQL database server. All you need is a valid installation of Perl and MySQL in your box which means that you have successfully install it upon XAMPP installation. 

You need to install back-end module for DBI to communicate to MySQL which is DBD::mysql

If you are using Debian based systems including Ubuntu you use:

apt-get install libdbd-mysql-perl

On RedHat based systems use:

yum install perl-DBD-mysql

On Windows systems

Install ActiveState Perl

Check https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/activestate-perl.html for more info.


I hope it helps.
