Update to Perl 5.8.8
Posted by - NA - on 18 September 2007 10:10 PM

Prior to upgrading Perl, it is a good idea to ensure that each module gets carried over to the update Perl version using the "autobundle" CPAN feature. You will need to execute this command via root in SSH (log into the shell as root):

perl -MCPAN -e 'autobundle'

Once this is complete, you should have the the following outputted before returning to the shell:

'Wrote bundle file /home/.cpan/Bundle/'

Make a note of the filename before proceeding with the update.

To update to Perl 5.8.8 on Linux based servers:

cd /root
tar -zxf perl588installer.tar.gz
cd perl588installer
