    Question Newbie and Perl 5 Install

    Hello. I'm new to dedicated hosting. I've got a Cobalt Raq 4. I don't seem to have Perl installed on it. I'm trying to do password maintenance and need Perl 5 on the server.

    I see in the control panel how to install software...
    Server Management/Maintenance/install software

    I'm not familiar with packages or Perl 5. Where can I get it and is there anything to watch out for??

    Where did you get your raq? Perl is installed by default.

    Don't think the admin panel will even work without perl.

    What's more, installing a new version of perl will without any doubt kill the admin gui. Unless you know a clever way around that, don't install perl.

    Just start a ssh session and type: whereis perl
    it'll probable show something, meaning you have perl.

    Since you are a newbie, be carefull with installing anything. Cobalts have a mind of their own. Make sure you do some digging before jumping into it.
    Hmm, what does this do... Oops!

    Perl 5 is already installed

    Yes, I just found out, Perl's already installed.

    Thanks everyone.
