Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

In another article we cover How to View Existing Perl Modules in Virtualmin. However, using the Existing modules interface, you can also upgrade Perl modules at your discretion. This guide will show you how to do just that. Please note that you’ll need to have Virtualmin installed with Webmin access before proceeding. If you’re not certain how to to either of these things, please refer to the following guides.



Let’s take a look at how to upgrade Perl modules:


  1. Click on the Webmin section
  2. Click on the Others option
  3. Click on the Perl Modules module


Showing the Perl Module location


  1. Select the Existing modules tab
  2. This will reveal a list of currently installed Perl Modules


Showing the existing modules interface


  1. Select the checkbox next to the module(s) that you’d like to upgrade
    1. For the purpose of this guide we will be selecting Sub::Exporter
  2. Once you’re satisfied with your selection(s), scroll to the bottom of the interface and click the Upgrade Modules button



That’s it! The selected module(s) should now be upgraded and ready for you to use. If you find that you’d like to uninstall a module or two, we also have a great guide that covers this process that you can check out below:
