I have a godaddy virtual dedicated server with cpanel that needs to be updated to new version of perl. Running Redhat Fedora 4. I received the following message:
The version of perl you are running (v5.8.7) is too old. There are
known problems that cannot be worked around with this version of perl. It
is HIGHLY recommended that you upgrade to v5.8.8 or later. Any module
install failures should be ignored until perl has been upgraded as
some modules will not be able to install with this version of perl.
You can ensure that each installed module gets carried over to
the updated Perl build with the use of the "autobundle" CPAN feature.
You can create a bundle of the currently installed modules
by executing the following while logged in via SSH as root:
perl -MCPAN -e 'autobundle'
Once completed, you should see the following output before getting
returned to the shell:
'Wrote bundle file /home/.cpan/Bundle/[url removed, login to view]'
Once you've made note of this file name, you can proceed with the
On linux based systems, you should be able to update Perl using
the installer provided at [url removed, login to view]:
wget [url removed, login to view]
tar -zxf [url removed, login to view]
Looking to upgrade perl version and make sure server is in top shape. If you can do this please quote me asap. Thank you.
