Starting Apache and access to perl support oi Oracle 8.1.7

Hi
I have HP-UX 11.0 with Oracle 8.1.7 on it. So I need:
1.To start Apache to make my DB server to work as Web server.
2.To provide access to perl for writing corresponding progs.
What should I do for it and where can I find information within $ORACLE_HOME/.... about my steps to do it.
Thank you.

Re: Starting Apache and access to perl support oi Oracle 8.1.7

Hi,

I don't think it is a good idea to run a webserver together with the database server. You are putting all your eggs in one basket.

If someone compromises the security of your webserver from the Internet, he will be able to compromise your database server as a result since both the webserver and database server are residing on the same box.

Have your apache webserver separate and install DBI-Oracle and DBD-Oracle perl modules for interfacing with the Oracle backend database server.

Hope this helps. Regards.
