    Hi, i want to install lftp using WHM, but it says:

    "Missing Dependency: perl(String::CRC32) is needed by package lftp-3.7.11-4.el5_5.3.x86_64 (base)"

    Please how can i install this dependency or LFTP successfully?

    I tried this guide to install this dependency, but it does not work. Maybe i need to restart anything? What?

    Thank you

    This is happening because /etc/yum.conf has perl* listed as an exclusion. If you remove the exclusion for perl* in that file, then you will be able to install lftp

    I am wondering why you are trying to install lftp when we provide pure-ftpd or proftpd on the machine. Of note, you won't have us able to support pure-ftpd or proftpd ceasing to work upon installing lftp on your machine.

    Also, I highly suggest re-adding the perl* exclusion into /etc/yum.conf after you've gotten lftp rpm to install via yum.

    Thank you, i have removed (perl*) from that file
    then installed lftp (yum install lftp) and then added (perl*) again into the file. Works.

    Hello,

    That's great!

    On cPanel server pure-ftpd or proftpd is recommended ftp software. If you are using lftp on your server then you may have to face the performance issues with the ftp server.
