Using variables available in Perl scripts in httpd.conf file

Hi,

I have a use-case that I need to use the variables available in Perl in my httpd.conf file.

First, I call the Perl scripts, I set the variables. Then in the httpd.conf file, I call the variable to set request headers.


The use-case is: I need to encrypt the value of a request header which I intend to do in perl and then using RequestHeader in httpd.conf, I set the value that I get from Perl.



PLEASE HELP!!!

Please help with WHAT? You didn't actually ask a question anywhere.

Do you have perl installed?
Do you know how to run perl?
Do you know how to write a perl program?

Without you telling us what exactly the problems is, what you have tried, what happened, and what you expected to happen, about the only help you can expect is "Start here".


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
