in thread Installing (lotsa) modules

run a VM locally the same OS and architecture as your target

Therein lies the difficulty...I have no idea of either the OS (other than Linux) or architecture of the target virtual machine.

It is not something I am going to spend much time on.
When it becomes mission critical, and when my Linux confidence improves, I will upgrade to VPS or dedicated server which will make the issue obsolete.

    "have no idea of either the OS (other than Linux) or architecture of the target virtual machine."

    If only we as a species had one (or more) ways to search for answers to such things :P

      As you yourself said marto in Re^10: Perlbrew on shared hosting
      As your skills develop no doubt you'll consider alternatives

      As yet, those skills haven't developed sufficiently. Instead I've been implementing templating and replacing require *.pl; with modules.

      Probably more useful skills to me than learning to identify the architecture of a virtual machine that will be replaced before very long with one of known architecture and over which I have more control.

        The point being that in the time it took you to post a reply telling me that you'd "no idea" what either of these things was you could have done a web search explaining exactly how to go about this. Which is a better use of your time?
