    A little more help or description might be in order. Please advise as to what kind of errors that you are getting. Also which perl rev you are using (ie: 5.8.x) and which type of OS. This will probably help someone diagnose what kind of problems you are having.



    You're so sly, but so am I. - Quote from the movie Manhunter.
      WinXP, I usually use PPM to install module, but PPM dosen't work right now. I went to GD website, it seem so complicated to install it manually.
        I don't know what wrong with PPM, I reinstall activeperl from activestate but didn't work. I shutdown my firewall and antivirus everything still wouldn't work.

    Try to set the download source of PPM from this link instead:

    I wonder what version of Perl are you using?
    Try Perl 5.8 above, if you are still using 5.6. There known to be a problem with DBD::mysql when used with 5.6
    Hope that helps
