Problems installing (Wrong perl version)

    At the moment I'm trying to install Plesk 7.5 Reloaded on 2 FreeBSD 5.3 boxes.

    With the standard FreeBSD install and perl (5.5, right?) I can't install Plesk (wrong perl version).

    So I've upgraded the whole system with CVSUP/Portupgrade. Make deinstall of the old perl and recompiled perl so I've got perl 5.8.7 on my system.

    Still Plesk won't install... Because Plesk requires 5.8.6.

    What can I do to get easly back to 5.8.6 so I can install PSA 7.5.3?

    I would

    deinstall the current perl

    download the source code for 5.8.6 and compile and install it that way.

    Ports is great, but it likes to use the most up to date software as possible, in some cases like this its not always the favourable option.

    In the ports tree for 4.9, ther'es a perl5 and perl 5.8 tree. make sure you're in the right one.

    Also, you might check and see if you have the other installed, but just not using it. You can do this via 'use.perl' and choose between system and port. Switch between and then do a perl -v.

    MAKE SURE YOUR PSA SOFTWARE IS STOPPED BEFORE MESSING WITH PERL. Database tearing will occur if you have any sort of traffic going on.
