    Installing Perl?

    I have recently switched to a new webhost and no longer have perl installed on the server. How do I got about installing it? Which version do I install? I only need to run perl to generate log reports. Thanks.

    i dont think u install it the server has to support it through they're servers.... its not like a chat board scripting... its the foundations for scripting...
    what do your new hosts supply u with? im with oneandone.... very good support.

    Amongst other things :
    Custom CGI Support
    Latest Perl 5.6.1 version
    Apache ASP
    PHP 4.1.6

    I'm with echolima.com. So I just ask them to install or tell them I want it on my site?

    if they support perl 5.6.1 the all u should need to do is put the scripts in relevant dirs in ur server space... if its the same data that was on ur previous server make sure all paths are directed to new targets....

    should work fine if it supports latest version...

    if not ur host should supply FAQ's for ur problems....

    Thanks. I made a copy of my config file off-line before switching hosts so hopefully it will work once I point to the correct dirs.

    it depends on the host

    you will have a cgi-bin were you can put your executable scripts
    you may have your own personal log file, usually in a logs folder
    and a htdocs or public-html for your html files.

    assuming a unix system, with a semi-default installation.

    I've installed the script but am having problems getting it working correctly. One script gives permission errors even though I have set the permissions to the relevant files to 755 and another script gives a bad interpreter error.
