in reply to Permissions denied

Unfortunately, OP, you neglect to give us any details ... if possible, run the command in the terminal and include a post which shows exactly what the error message is.   (Maybe ... see below.)

I cannot readily see how a Perl module, when executing, would encounter a “permission denied” message, unless(!) that file was prepared by “the original admin” and it contains some library-path reference to his home directory, which (if it exists) you would not have access to.

If your previous post identifying cpan.txt is intended to be the data that I asked for in my paragraph #1, then this suggests that the original admin probably did have his own local CPAN-repository.   Searching the source-code of the application-folder (with grep) for instances of phrases such as these might point you in the proper direction to see where these file-references are actually coming from.   (It might be use lib statements, or some reference to the environment-variable PERL5LIB ...)   Just tell us what you do find.

If the original admin’s home account still exists, you might see if it contains a .bash_profile file which sets values for one-or-more environment variables.   (And, to see what other Perl-ish files might be there.)   If you can change the password of this account and then log on to it, it might be very enlightening to see what happens when you attempt to run this command while actually logged-on as him.   Please report to us anything and everything that you find, as we will know how to interpret your findings.
