If you require a Perl5 Module that is not included in the Perl5 Standard Libraries, you may be able use the cpan utility to install it.

To launch cpan into interactive mode, run the following command as root from your VPS v2 SSH prompt:

perl5 -MCPAN -e shell

NOTE: If you receive an out of memory error while running vcpan, you may temporarily extend your memory limits by invoking the unlimit command before running cpan (also available in certain shells as ulimit):

% unlimit
