    If I use the cpanel perl upgrade is it going to blow away my current @INC list ?

    or will it preserve the paths so i don't have to reinstall all the perl modules?

    I know this may sound like a stupid question but its one of those BTDT on a non cpanel box and took half a day to reinstall all the perl modules.

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    If you use the cPanel perl installer it will install a new perl and then install all the perl modules that cPanel needs (if it doesn't you just need to run /scripts/rpmup). I don't believe that it will install any that you have added.

    Thanks Chirpy

    I was afraid it would blow away the @INC and from what you said it will.

    So I guess the perl will stay as is till I can devote a day to it.
