( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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:
  • What steps do I take to install the module?
  • Will I run into permission problems?
  • Is there a chance of screwing things up big time?
  • Will the modules be installed to the right place automatically?
  • Will the Perl scripts instantly be able to find the newly installed modules or is this a seperate step?
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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
