I need to install Bugzilla using XAMPP with Perl on my Windows XP machine. What is the procedure?

I have installed PHP based applications in XAMPP like Joomla, WordPress, etc., but it seems that Bugzilla is Perl based. Its installation guide is saying that I need to install ActivePerl. Do I need to do so since XAMPP comes with Perl addon?

Should I be keeping the source files in htdocs itself or is there any other folder for Perl applications?

I am totally new to Perl and honestly have no idea about it. Any help will be appreciated.

AFAIK, XAMPP contains ActivePerl, so you can try using ppm utility to install modules. Or just use cpan shell. cpan Bundle::Bugzilla will help at start. – Alexandr Ciornii Dec 1 '09 at 1:30

did you look at this document already?

The documentation linked to hear does not talk about XAMPP, but Windows 32-bit in general. The question is asking about XAMPP and specifically if it has existing support for ActivePerl. – Hamman Samuel Mar 17 '14 at 22:10
