    I'm having some high load issues with MailScanner / SpamAssassin and I've read that if I upgrade to perl 5.8.8 it should fix the problem, so I'm wondering if this is the proper way to upgrade perl:

    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz
    tar xvzf perl588installer.tar.gz
    cd perl588installer
    ./install

    I'm running two boxes, one is RHEL 3 and the other RHEL 4, both cPanel 10.9.0-R10737

    A bit nervous about doing this upgrade for fear of A) what it might break and B) choosing the wrong upgrade method.

    Thank you for any advice.

    Thanks!

    Just FYI, I had a typo in there - "cd perl584installer" should have been "cd perl588installer"
