in thread A Guide to Installing Modules

I am a retired web host provider ,we used to provide free webhosting for reurned servicemen in US UK and here in Australia. Until I retired they deleted them all.After my complaining theyve given me a shared server but Im not allowed to use admin privelidges. Obviously I jumped at ir. It seems I was a bit too keen because I have no access to mysql or php. I'm not sure what is the best way around this. I need to provide accounts but don't need accounting(creditcard etc) Simply need to have a way to supply free webhosting . I have been recomended phpmywebhosting but can't seem to get it started. The site is You can see where I've started and got stuck at I know it's probablt an easy fix but does anyone have a way to install all php,sql,in one go remotely via ftp?

Instalation Errors

    I've read your entire guide, and I still can't figure out how to get it to work, mostly due to my stupidity, i think.
    I have Windows XP Home and really I'm just messing around with PERL. I'm trying to install the Data::Serializer module. As you suggested, I downloaded CYGWIN(even though I can't stand BASH shells). Previously, I had used a program called ActivePerl to run my perl scripts. Here's what I did:

    Downloaded the module to desktop from CPAN
    Opened it with WinZip, and extracted it to C:\Perl\lib
    Opened CYGWIN, changed to the directory, used perl
    It told me that it had successfully installed it
    I went to run my script(C:\ using ActivePerl, not CYGWIN, and I get the same error as when I had not installed the module. Here is the error if it helps:

    Can't locate Data/ in @INC (@INC contains: C:/Perl/lib C:/Perl/site/lib .) at C:\ line 4.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\ line 4.

      You can't use cygwin to install modules for ActivePerl.
