in thread perl default include library

So, I just remembered that he likes to make a clone of the server before upgrading. I checked out the clone server and apparently it WAS running a previous version, 5.8.4, so it must have upgraded the perl (sorry, I got it confused with another server).

Anywhooo...So since the perl was upgraded, am I better off reinstalling the modules, or can I simply point to the existing modules? What is the best practice here?

    As different major versions of Perl (such as 5.8.x vs. 5.10.x) are not binary compatible, you need to reinstall XS modules (those which are not pure Perl).  Pure Perl modules should continue to work, but you might want to check anyway whether there are new versions available (with bugfixes, new features,...).
