    How can I down grade modules?

    CPanel Updates Breaking Movable Type Installations
    http://www.sixapart.com/pronet/weblog/2005/07/cpanel_updates_.html
    "The modules are currently identified as DBI and DBD::mysql. Preliminary
    reports suggest that reverting these two modules to versions 1.47 and
    2.9006 respectively will eliminate the 500 errors."

    This person's hosting reverted the Perl modules to the versions above as
    suggested and the problem was solved.

    As I believe that you also did a CPanel upgrade which caused the
    trouble, would it possible to revert the two Perl modules to correct the
    situation?

    The problem is with MovableType , not with cPanel. While a downgrade is a baindaid, patcfhing MovableType is the correct fix.
    .
    It's trying to store binary data in a TEXT column instead of using a BLOB, and it's also MySQL's fault for having allowed anyone to do this in the first place...however, I really don't see cPanel at fault here period. :)

    Me think's you'll have to wait untill the moveable type developers stop complaining about the fault in cpanel that is causing this and take the blame themeselves for not being able to provide a viable solution. Or perhaps find yourself an alternative piece of software that has a more constructive rather than destructive and backwards way of thinking ?

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed. The problem is with the latest module posted on cpan that MT uses. It's MT's responsibility if that breaks its code to find a solution until/when/if the module author does anything about it.

    Anyway, closing thread as this has been discussed to death already over the last few days.
