newrisedesigns has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Good Fellow Monks,
I attempted to install the XML::Simple module on a remote machine that I do not have direct access or root access. The machine is a webserver that my company uses through a web hosting provider.
Everything went smoothly, until CPAN attempted to install XML::Parser (required by XML::Simple). "make install" returned an error, and CPAN stopped installing.
I attempted to manually install the files through the shell, and was able to pinpoint the problem with XML::Parser::Expat, which is missing/cannot access "expat.h". After looking in Expat.c and Expat.xs, and noticing they both "include <expat.h>", I found a copy of expat.h, and just for the hell of it, I uploaded it, and attempted to see if just including that file would help. No luck.
Here's the error response from "make install" in the Expat subdirectory.
This is my first attempt at installing a module remotely and any help would be greatly appreciated.gcc -c -fno-strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include -O2 -march=i386 -mcp +u=i686 - DVERSION=\"2.31\" -DXS_VERSION=\"2.31\" -fPIC -I/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i +386-linux/ CORE Expat.c Expat.xs:12:19: expat.h: No such file or directory make: *** [Expat.o] Error 1
