in thread Copy perl module to webhost

I install things without shell access all the time. It goes something like this:
$ wget module-src.tar.gz $ cat >install-module #!/bin/sh -x printf "Content-type: text/plain\n\n" tar xvzf module-src.tar.gz cd module-src perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/your/home make make test make install ^D $ ftp ftp> cd cgi-bin ftp> bin ftp> put module-src.tar.gz ftp> put install-module ftp> site chmod +x install-module ftp> quit

Then visit Of course this will all vary somewhat, but the basic formula works.

Update: As CountZero says, your provider must have the appropriate compiler available. And don't forget to remove the install-module script when you're done, for security reasons.
