For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Small Web Server in Perl

I would not encourage you to write your own web server in Perl, but I might suggest that you used the http protocol as a convenient intersystem communication protocol ... and that might result in you implementing part of http for the purpose ;-)

With that proviso in mind, I have just added source code for a miniature server to our web site ... run it on a system and that system will act as a web server, within limits ... and it will give you a springboard from which you can make use of the http protocol and the data uploaded through it.

Running example (visited from a browser on another system):

earth-wind-and-fire:~/Desktop grahamellis$ ./miniserver.pl 4434
  _status = 200
  jjj = iii jkjhhgj
  _method = GET
  _status = 404
  _method = GET
earth-wind-and-fire:~/Desktop grahamellis$

If you're wanting to write code like this, have a look at our Using Perl on The Web course. And if you want to learn how to set up a more regular web server, consider our Apache httpd deployment course instead.
