Any help is appreciated on this!


I have a website with a few different components to it (main page, web-store etc.)
Several of those pages come up as "Software Error", for example if the page is id as
Every .cgi page in this cgi-bin/dc folder comes up as this software error.
My hosting provider has not been too helpful as they just keep saying it's a site provider issue.
The site provider responded with;

This error indicates the Perl module Date::Calc is not installed.


 Please contact your hosting provider and ask them to ensure the following Perl modules are installed: 

Date::Calc, MIME::Lite, MIME::Types, Crypt::CBC, Crypt::Blowfish, PHP::Serilization and XML::Simple 
The Perl module installation is the responsibility of your hosting provider. If your hosting account uses the cPanel control panel software you should be able to install the Perl modules yourself, if you do not use cPanel then B___Host (I edited out my host provider) will be responsible for the Perl module installation as you will not have access to do this yourself.
I know some basics but have no idea what any of that means. I do have access to my cPanel but unless I am doing this wrong I searched in my cPanel\Perl Modules and cannot find one of these Perl modules mentioned?
I do have a FTP backup of the site but I only backed up my PUBLIC_HTML folders and nothing else, I am guessing the Perl modules are in my \Home folder as I did not see it in my PUBLIC_HTML ?
Thanks for any help!
