Updating cpan modules

If you have any IT policy requirements to only use vendor packaged versions of software, this might be an issue.If so, you can consider installing an RT-only version of Perl. Occasionally vendors introduce their own changes to their packaged version of Perl or modules and these might create issues when running RT.First of all, install the Perl language and the dependencies if they are not already installed on your server. In other words, if the module has dependencies it will not work and you will need to manually install all of them to fix this.Alternatively, you can use your system package manager to install the module and all its dependencies automatically or use the This will also ensure that all module dependencies will be properly installed.One of the ways is by building the module from source.This way is useful when a single module with no dependencies is required to be installed. Please note that this way of installing Perl modules is not recommended as during the installation no dependencies are being installed.You can run RT on the vendor Perl on your system as long as it meets the minimum version requirement.

The CPAN module also supports named and versioned bundles of modules.

Doing so ensures the modules can be installed on new systems, or rebuilt on new platforms.

This supports reproducible module installs over time, as on Mac OS X.

Today we are going to show you how to install Perl modules manually or by using CPAN on your Linux.
