    Or you could use one of the installers on layer1.cpanel.net .. I wouldn't advise using any other installer unless you choose to go with your OS's released perl. You may be kicking yourself in the end if you use an installer not provided by cpanel or your OS.

    upgrade perl 5.6.1 to 5.8.4

    We are looking at upgrading Perl on our server, from 5.6.1 to 5.8.4 via the layer1.cpanel.net installer. When using the cpanel installer, will it install the newer perl over the current version installed, same locations, keeping all the existing added perl modules inplace without having to re-install a bunch of perl modules again, or causing problems with existing perl scripts being used?? We do not use mod_perl either.

    Does this upgrade,5.8.4, use enable perl threading??

    Appreciate any feedback :)

    Go on, have a guess
    When you upgrade your version of perl you will need to reinstall any additional perl modules that you have installed manually. If you use the cPanel installer it will install those modules that cPanel need. When you've finished running the installer you should run /scripts/rpmup several times until it runs cleanly (i.e. it no longer tries to install any more modules).
