    Hello,

    I was looking to see if I could find anything on if perl will ever be updated from 5.8? Like this post, I'd like to have at least 5.10 myself but I don't want to mess with the base install and because I use mod_perl, I think that would be the only way.

    Perl 5.8.8 is almost 7 years old which makes me wonder if it would ever be updated.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link, so is that saying that WHM and CPANEL uses its own perl install and a system update to a later perl would have now effect on CPANEL?

    TIA
