    Doesn't seem to be a massively critical update, but it fixes and updates a variety of things.

    I'm upgrading now and will let you know how it goes.

    5.8.8 seems to have installed successfully and working fine, but cP seems to be bugged and shows that the installed version is 5.8.7, I'll report back when I find out whats up.

    try deleting the file in the /home/USERNAME /.cpanel-datastore/_usr_bin_perl_-v then relogin Cpanel, then it should show the right version.

    did you happen to notice if you lost any Perl modules previously installed under 5.8.7 ver??

    Indeed, that did update the version number for the account I tried it with to 5.8.8.

    I'd hate to have to do this for each account though, I'm looking into a way to do it for all accounts, I'll get back to you all again. :)

    If I did lose any perl modules (which I don't think I did), there was not a significant amount, as the list of installed ones is insanely long still. :)

    Ok, I got all of the accounts to update.

    If anyone wants a professional update to 5.8.8, I'll do it for $5. :)

    I'm wondering if any one that upgraded Perl with the new version, did you noticed that you had the same additional Perl modules that may have been installed, with pervious version.

    We added several Perl modules, via the WHM, and was wondering if these additional modules will still available after the upgraded or do we need to go back and reinstall all these additional modules ?

    Thx's

    Try /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkperlmodules
    Also make sure boxtrapper is disabled and refences to boxtrapper removed from /etc/exim.conf

    What I did was...

    login as root and cd to
    /root
    fetch http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl587installer.tar.gz
    tar xfz perl588installer.tar.gz
    cd perl588installer
    ./install

    Then run the following to make sure your mods are up to date.


    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkperlmodules


    --Tone

    Personally, I'd modify that first to make sure you download the right version with as well as cleaning up what you downloaded and removing the cached version files in cPanel so they will update to show 5.8.8 instead of what you may have installed already:

    What I did was...

    Code:
    cd /
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz
    tar -xvzf perl588installer.tar.gz
    cd ./perl588installer
    ./install
    cd /
    rm -rf ./perl588installer
    rm ./perl588installer.tar.gz
    rm -f /home/*/.cpanel-datastore/_usr_bin_perl_-v
    /scripts/upcp --force
    That's how I did it. :)

    Just follow those steps above or contact me for help.
