I first noticed this problem with the exim configuration editor.
Its also affecting tweak settings (and i'd assume everything else which has a form POST'd back).

When submitting the page to save my settings, firefox reports:

The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

Cpanels error_log shows:

Undefined subroutine &IO::Handle::blocking called at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.2/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 223.

And if i try to install the module (ive already done a complete update to the latest version of perl from layer1.cpanel.net)
Perl gives:

Warning: Cannot install IO::Handle::blocking, don't know what it is.
Try the command

i /IO::Handle::blocking/

to find objects with matching identifiers.
perlmod--Install done


Any suggestions?

having just spotted that extremely old perl version,

[email protected] [/usr/lib/perl5]# ls
./ ../ 5.6.2/ 5.8.0/ 5.8.7/ site_perl/ vendor_perl/
[email protected] [/usr/lib/perl5]# cd site_perl/
[email protected] [/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl]# ls
./ ../ 5.6.0/ 5.6.2/ 5.8.0/ 5.8.7/


how can i go about safely removeing the obsolete copies of perl?
