    When the cpanel server (latest release 68 on CloudLinux 7.4) was installed the admin skipped the "install common set of perl modules" step.

    A year-old thread here:

    SOLVED - Install common set of perl modules

    suggests using "/scripts/perlinstaller Task::Cpanel::Core"

    which fails with this error:

    Searching Task::Cpanel::Core on cpanmetadb (http://cpanmetadb.cpanel.net/v1.0/package/Task::Cpanel::Core) ...
    Source: fastest CPAN mirror ... ! couldn't find module or a distribution Task::Cpanel::Core
    System Expect failed with non-zero exit status: 1​


    A quick test that "/scripts/perlinstaller IO::Compress::Base" did work fine. I expect I could also (tediously) install everything as-needed via the "Install a Perl Module" WHM interface.

    Is there a different way of manually installing these now? Or at least a list of which modules get installed so that I can script it from the command-line via perlinstaller?

    I finally got around to installing all of these indivitually, once it turned out that at least one local client was actually using perl. Everything on the list installed except for four things:

    Net::AIM (obviously defunct)
    strict ("skipping S/SH/SHAY/perl-5.26.1.tar.bz2")
    warnings ("skipping S/SH/SHAY/perl-5.26.1.tar.bz2")
    Errno ("Couldn't find module or a distribution Errno")

    Presumably there should be no issue with these?

    Hello,

    That's correct. Net::AIM is no longer required now that we've removed AIM notifications from the product. Additionally, the entries for strict, warnings, and Errno in that meta file are not intended to be installed as third-party Perl modules. You can read more about them at:

    warnings - perldoc.perl.org
    strict - perldoc.perl.org
    Errno - perldoc.perl.org

    Thank you.
