updater doesn't find perl?

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to run the updater, and I get the following error:
    ----- begin of output -----
    Installing /PSA_7.5.4/Standard/psa_hotfix6_v7.5.4_build75060123.10_os_FreeBSD_5.3_i386.sh
    bsdtar 1.01.011, libarchive 1.01.013
    Use gtar

    Installation of this Plesk distribution requires that Perl 5.008007 version be installed on the server!

    However, if I check the perl version on the server, it shows that perl5.8.7 is already installed:
    hostname:/tmp>perl -v

    This is perl, v5.8.7 built for i386-freebsd-64int
    (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

    Which Perl does the Plesk look for? How can I make sure it looks for the right binary?

    Thank you in advance!

    I don't know much about Plesk and FreeBSD, but was Perl built manually and installed or what it installed using pkg_add?

    Plesk on Linux uses rpm to identify packages installed, it may be using the pkg_* tools to do the same on FreeBSD. If it was built manually without using the ports collection then that may be your issue. Run pkg_info and see if you can poke around for the perl installation.

    Hi Wagner,

    Thanks for the help. Actually, when I issue a pkg_info -a, I see:

    Information for perl-5.8.7:

    Practical Extraction and Report Language

    Required by:

    Perl is a language that combines some of the features of C, sed, awk and
    shell. See the manual page for more hype. There are also many books
    published by O'Reilly & Assoc. See pod/perlbook.pod for more

    WWW: http://www.perl.org/

    - MarkM

    So it looks to be installed on the pkg_* database. Is there anything else I can look at?

    It was more or less a wild guess, only thing I can suggest is to sit tight and hopefully someone with FreeBSD/Plesk expertise will step in and have an idea.
