Apache consists of two main components: Perl modules and Apache
itself. While installing Apache without root privileges is a
very easy task, one should know how to install Perl modules in a

to tackle this task. ...I'll use stas as a username and

install modules into system directories like /usr/lib/perl5, you

directory. It's easy."
"First you have to decide where to install the modules. The
simplest approach is to simulate the portion of the / file system
relevant to Perl under your home directory. Actually we need only
We don't have to create them, since that will be done automatically
when the first module is installed. 99 percent of the files will go
into the lib directory. Occasionally, when some module distribution
comes with Perl scripts, these will go into the bin directory. This
directory will be created if it doesn't exist."
