[SR-Users] kamcmd htable.reload propertiesHash problem

Unfortunately, I use the perl module in my kamailio.cfg.

So you're correct, I could install the mod_perl from the EPEL project. This
is possible on my test server in my lab.
At the moment, I had collected manually all rpm packages required for 5.0.1
(like Perl or snmp packages), that' was already a huge work.

Now if at each stream there is new dependencies, I would have to solve the
dependencies for other repo like with the EPEL repo.

But in a next step, I have to do the same installation on a customer site on
preimaged server with the following restrictions :
- from this site, I have no access to the internet (That's why, up to new, I
only download the packages I need)
- the preimaged server are RHEL 7.4 server without no required package

As said, I configured the EPEL repo on my test server and then try to
installed to mod_perl module. I starts ok but fails for other dependencies
(see attached).

So upgrading from Kamailio 5.0.1 to 5.0.7 is not as simple as I expected.

I hope I'm clear in my explanation.

Hello Patrick,

probably a stupid question, but do you actually use the perl module inside 
your kamailio cfg? If not - I would suggest to just remove the 5.0.1 perl 
module, and also not install it for 5.0.7. 

If you need it - the quoted artice states that its actually not difficult to

install mod_perl from the EPEL repository. This looks quite ok: "EPEL is the

high-quality RPM collection for RHEL and CentOS linux, maintened by the
