    About 2 months ago, in anticipation of Cpanel 11, perl was upgraded to 5.8.8 on my machines.

    Yet, every morning since I get the CP 11 upgrade I get the below email, what I need to know is how to turn this email off:

    -------
    The version of perl you are running (v5.8.1) 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 v5.8.5 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.

    For your convience an installer for perl v5.8.8 is available here:
    http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz
    ---------------

    So how do I stop Cpanel from sending this email? Again, I ALREADY have perl v.5.8.8 installed as can be verified by perl -v when logged in as root.

    you may have to update some perl modules. You may use WHM/Software install/perl modules.... look exactly what your error messages tell you. It worked fine for me to install DBD::XML and Web:: DAV::Server. After this install all was running fine again.

    hostseeker,

    Try in shell:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkperlmodules
    And:

    Code:
    /scripts/upcp --force
    Finally:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/cpanel restart

    Go on, have a guess
    /usr/bin/perl -v

    Make sure that reports v5.8.8, then check that /usr/local/bin/perl is a symlink to /usr/bin/perl and not its own binary.
