Common Perl Modules, RPMs, Binaries, etc.. to install?
I just got done installing NetPBM, ImageMagick, and Jhead on our server. What other Perl Modules, RPMs, Binaries, etc.. should we install that are helpful to your customers in your experiance? How about helpful for you as the adminstration?
We are running cPanel/WHM - CentOS 3.4
IcyBlueHost Home of the average 15 minute response time!
Rvskins - Sitebuilder - Resell Reseller Accounts
Why not wait until they are needed to install them? The more RPMs, Binaries, etc you install, the more software is available to exploit, more load on the server, less disk space available, etc. We generally install Perl modules and custom software per our users' requests and otherwise, we try to keep things as "lean" as possible.
I find that ImageMagick, and PHP add-ons such as curl, GD, freetype support, Zend Optimizer, etc find their way on to most of our servers as they are quite popular.
