  1. incase the above command did not work out for you just use cpan.

    first type “cpan”
    then:
    install Digest::SHA1 Crypt::PasswdMD5
    then exit cpan by typing “exit”

  2. Sounds like you have a corrupted perl install, to reinstall perl do the following:

    first try

    /scripts/fixperl

    if that doesn’t do it you’ll need a complete perl reinstall so do the following:

    wget http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz
    tar xzvf perl588installer.tar.gz
    rm -rf perl588installer.tar.gz (skip this if you want to keep the tarball)
    cd perl588installer/
    ./install

    it’ll take awhile but when it’s done it should be fixed.
