Installing Subversion on a cPanel Server

It should be easy right? Just “yum install subversion”.

Nope. You get this error message:

Error: Missing Dependency: perl(URI) >= 1.17 is needed by package

It’s not a problem in CentOS, no, it’s a restriction created by cPanel to control what is installed using yum.

Here’s what you do:

  • Edit your “/etc/yum.conf” file.
  • Remove “perl*” from the “exclude” line.
  • Run your “yum install subversion”
  • Add the “perl*” back to the “exclude” line in the yum file.

That’s it! It will install as expected.
