Plesk 7.5 reloaded refuses to install

    Just upgraded a freebsd 5.2.1-release to 5.3-release-p10 for a client and they requested plesk reloaded 7.5 to be installed.

    I've gone through, instealled perl5.8 from ports, and getting this message when I attempt to install plesk:

    This distr needs perl 5.008005, but you have perl 5.008006 installed

    Any suggestions as to how to fix it?

    Hmm. Kinda stupid that they dont code their logic to request >= 5.8.5 instead of the exact version. Anyway; If you used ports to upgrade to 5.8.6, you should be able to tell the system to use the older perl that came with FreeBSD 5.3 temporarily:

    Edit your /etc/make.conf and make sure it says


    Then do the install, and change those lines back in /etc/make.conf

    Or, you could just temporarily rename perl like:

    mv /usr/local/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/perl5.8.6
    cp /usr/local/bin/perl5.8.5 /usr/local/bin/perl

    Do the install, then move perl 5.8.6 back, etc.

    I just saved myself after upgrading my ports. Perl got upgraded to 5.8.6, because perl is hardcoded into Plesk this action was not quite smart.

    - install sysutils/portdowngrade from the ports.
    - portdowngrade -s anoncvs@anoncvs1.FreeBSD.org:/home/ncvs perl
    - if you get a list, choose Perl5.8.
    - Choose 2004/11/25 11:01:14 as a rollback date.
    - put http://www.cpan.org/src/perl-5.8.5.tar.bz2 in /usr/ports/distfiles
    - portsdb -Uu
    - cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
    - make install clean
    if make gives an error:
    - make deinstall
    - make reinstall

    And everything is working properly again.

    I hope you can use this with your fresh install....
