Confirm Upgrading Perl to 5.18.1 Without Problems With WHM/Cpanel

    Hello :) Per our documentation: As of cPanel & WHM version 11.36, we distribute a 3rd version of Perl located at /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/bin/perl. In addition, we have changed the Perl scripts that we distribute with cPanel & WHM to use this version of perl. These scripts include the cPanel system maintenance scripts (in /usr/local/cpanel/scripts) and in CGI scripts in cPanel & WHM. This change allows you to manage your system's Perl binary independently of cPanel & WHM. Ultimately, you can no longer expect all of the same modules to be installed into @INC for the system's Perl binary located at /usr/bin/perl in cPanel & WHM 11.36. Thank you.
