    I am trying to install a Perl Module. So in WHM I go Main >> Software >> Install a Perl Module and click the button for Show available Perl Module(s). The list is empty. I try to look for one using search. The list is again empty.

    Is there something that I need to do to have this list populated? Point it off to CPAN....??

    When I try the same thing from a CPanel user account I get a message. "There was a problem fetching the list of available modules." Perhaps the two are related.

    Thanks

    Try to install the perl module from SSH and see if you receive any error message

    If you do, turn off the firewall OR change the resolvers and see if the problem exists.

    and add the following at the top

    It looks like it goes through the install process OK.

    The actual module I chose image::magick seems to blow lots of errors but does go through the process.

    So question remains???

    Hold the phone!! It looks like trying to install it manually has updated the list of modules. Can this be the case??
