FreeBSD 5.3 Perl port problem

    Datacenter says that

    "FreeBSD 5.3 an older version of Perl in the ports collection. I can't get Plesk to install without the correct version of Perl. "

    Is it true?
    What is the solution?

    Please - don't post your questions more than once... But again... Update your ports collection - this will get you Perl 5.8.7 which is expected by Plesk.

    I found solution

    The way I would do this is:

    cd /usr
    rm -R ports
    fetch ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/p...ts/ports.tar.gz
    tar zxvf ports.tar.gz && rm ports.tar.gz

    Then follow through the instructions to upgrade perl

    1. cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
    2. make deinstall (removes perl5.8.6)
    3. make reinstall (hurray! now we have 5.8.7)

    Sorry full ports path is here

    cd /usr
    rm -R ports
    fetch ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz
    tar zxvf ports.tar.gz && rm ports.tar.gz

    cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
    make deinstall
    make reinstall
