FreeBSD 5.3 Perl port problem

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by deneme, Oct 9, 2005.

    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?

    Update your ports collection :)

    But I must warn you:

    If you don't know anything about your FreeBSD OS and how to use it / update it - you might seriously consider asking your Datacenter to do the job for you!

    Update Perl / Ports at your own risk and be aware that it might render you system in a non 100% operational state if anything goes wrong.

    Hey Whistler, it sounds like he has been contacting his DC and they don't know how...

    I know! But I think it's a bit out of scope of this forum (as usual) to teach people how to use their OS.

    But if his datacenter can't/won't do it - then he'll have to try for himself - or find (probably pay) someone to do it. And then - I would - if I was him - find another datacenter to run my hosting service if they can't/won't help. But then again - that depends also on what you pay for and what agreement you have signed with the datacenter running the server.

    But my advice about the datacenter is more a kind of disclaimer part :-|

    Hımm okey.
    I think there is problem with FreeBSD Perl port with PLESK 7.5.4

    I wanted to install PLESK 7.5.4 to FreeBSD5.3 one months ago. I got error with perl port problem.

    Is there any solution to install PLESK 7.5.4 to FreeBSD 5.x?

    Hmmm... Why do you think theres a problem? What error do you get? I have no problems here... took a little time to upgrade with all the needed CPAN modules etc. - but it all works fine here...

    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)

    They look like my instructions :D

    I have upgraded 5 Plesk servers to 7.5.4 FreeBSD and it works fine running those commands before to upgrade perl.

    You will also need to reinstall any perl modules you might have installed yourself.
