    Hi there guys,

    I need IPC::Open3. Really bad. When I search for it in WHM's "Perl-Installa-module", it finds it, and I click it. I attempts to install it, tells me that it comes with Perl 5.8.8(I have 5.8.7), then tells me that something went wrong during make.

    I really need this module! How do I get WHM to successfully install it?

    thanks,

    Here is the exact output when trying to install the module throughWHM. I was thinking that it might be handy in diagnosing the problem:

    Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated, as I'm in quite a bind without it.

    thanks,

    IPC::Open3 comes with perl-5.8.8. So you can grab perl-5.8.8 and compile it on the server.

    Thank you very much for your reply, however, I downloaded 5.8.8, and it failed the make & install as well with the same final error as I got with attempting to install the module.

    I just didn't know if something was configured incorrectly. I can't install a perl module, and I can't upgrade perl.

    thanks,

    Hi there,

    Is there a certain way, method or command to upgrade Perl to 5.8.8 for cpanel? I was amazed at the questions asked during the install, and don't have any clue what to answer for most of them.

    Also, would the upgrade keep all of the previously installed modules?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    thanks,

    Hi there Andy,

    I would be quite happy to stick with 5.8.7, but is there a way I can install the needed module? Regardless of whether I attempt to install via WHM or cli(through the command the cpanel FAQ suggests), I get the error noted in my second post.

    I didn't mean to suggest that I want to upgrade perl, I just thought it might be the only way to get this module installed.

    Thanks very much for taking the time to reply.

    thanks,

    The cPanel is still using v5.8.7 and if I were you I won't upgrade to v5.8.8. If you do, some of the modules will be replaced/overwrittne by the new version. After all, it is your call :)

    The message returned by the system is self-explanatory:

    The most recent version "1.02" of the module "IPC::Open3"
    comes with the current version of perl (5.8.8).
    I'll build that only if you ask for something like
    force install IPC::Open3


    I am not sure if you want IPC::Open3 v1.02. If you do, then you can foce installing it:
    /scripts/perlinstaller --force IPC::Open3

    Hi there,

    I forced the install of IPC::Open3, which installed Perl 5.8.8, but although I restarted Apache, the client panels still show 5.8.7. Did I maybe neglect something? Do I need to completely reboot the server for the change to take effect?

    thanks,
