emilford has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I've grown tired of waiting around for my hosting server's tech support to respond to my requests, as they've become a bit slow and unreliable. It seems that a large number of needed Perl modules are not currently installed by host. I'm wondering if someone could give me a little guidance on installing Perl modules locally, so I no longer have to rely on tech support.

I need questions answered like: I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer. On a side note, can anyone recommend a good, cheap, reliable (and so on) host for a simple, personal website?

TIA, emilford
