I think this is too much work for a server you don't have root access to.

First and foremost- ask the admin to do it. Are you being ignored, refused? Consider another box (hosting provider/etc), or find a solution to your task that doesn't involve installing custom DBI drivers.

It's not a popular answer- but it is my honest suggestion- and in jaded experience, I think a good one.

I mean, is this like the last pebble to make your pyramid? How often will you be needing installs like this? Installing MySQL DBI drivers can be a little bit of a hassle even with root access, for example. You have to know that there are other funny non-perl deps.
So, this kind of thing can happen again with other modules- and waste a ton of your very valuable time.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
