A k12ltsp install would be the same as the equivalent fedora version.

There may be an rpm version somewhere, but I don't think it is up
to date.

Perl should have already been part of your k12ltsp install, and the
needed perl modules could have been installed with the perl
CPAN module easier than doing it by hand - type:
perl -MCPAN -eshell (you can usually answer 'no' to the first time
question about setup and just go with the defaults).  Than at the
CPAN prompt enter
install module_name
and 'quit' when done.
If you followed the instructions to create a backuppc user to own
everything, you may be having apache permission problems caused
by selinux.  Turn it off.  Also, you need the setuid version of
perl.  'yum install perl-suidperl' if you are using the stock version
of perl or compile with that option if you really built your own.
Look in /var/log/httpd/error_log to see what problem you are having
if it still doesn't work.
