    Im finding that 5.8.0 is breaking stats so I install the 5.7 version found on layer1.cpanel.net and run a /scripts/upcp and everythings fine again.... which perl *should* be installed?

    So 5.8.7 is what is needed regardless of linux type, can someone else confirm it ?

    I can confirm it :) You should run v5.8.7 to ensure compatibility - the main reason is that the DBI perl module maintainer has dropped support for the older versions and that's why the stats (and other things) break.

    I've only had problems with it on x86_64 servers, and those were sovable after some head-scratching and help from cPanel - basically make sure that the x32 glibc modules are also installed.
