mod_perl was dropped from Apache in 2.4, and Red Hat followed suit with RHEL 7.

That must be someone’s backport.  As someone who migrated a mod_perl based app off of mod_perl several years ago, I recommend that you do not use it, unless you have old mod_perl based software that you cannot migrate to newer technologies like FastCGI, Plack, etc.

I hope this does not strike you as inconsistent with respect to my prior posts, since that would be to construct a false equivalence between abandoned software and maintained stable software that is getting no new features.

Also, you speak of CGI.  CGI is not at all the same thing as mod_perl.  You use one or the other, not both together.  You’d know it if you were using mod_perl.
