There are 2 ways to check if Perl scripting engine is enabled for a domain:

1. Using the default Parallels Plesk Panel domain page content (http://domain.tld/index.html) - then by the "Perl" item. The domain name should be resolved locally at least and the web-content should be Panel domain default content.

The test looks successful if Perl possibilities test page is shown.

2. Using a simple script like this:
print "content-type:text/html\n\n";
print "<html>\n";
print "<head />\n";
print "<body>\n";
print "Hello World!\n";
print "</body>\n";
print "</html>\n";

It is necessary to put the content into a text file and save in the domain web-accessible folder (like $HTTPD_VHOSTS_D/domain.tld/httpdocs) on the server with .pl extension ( for example). Then try to open the file via browser by the http://domain.tld/ URL. The domain name should be resolved locally at least.

The test looks successful if a page shows the "Hello World!" string. If an error or full script listing is visible, it means that Perl script engine is not configured for the domain properly.
