    Where Do I Upload PHP, Perl, MySQL, etc..?

    I just got my own dedicated server running Red Hat 7.2 and I'm wanting to learn how to administer it. Can somebody tell me how I'm supposed to upload packages such as PHP, Perl, MySQL, and any other software I'd like to install?

    I know it's supposed to be untarred in the /usr/local directory but how do I get it there? Do I need to FTP to /home/user, upload the files, then somehow move them from /home/user to /usr/local? If so, how can I move them?

    Say I compile Perl under /user/local/perl will the shebang line for Perl scripts be #!/usr/bin/perl?

    Best Regards,

    Hi John. Usually packages like that come with the all the software installed. Maybe worth asking your hosting providers too. (We run Redhat 7.2 along with Plesk 2.5 and everything came ready to host)What control panel are you running? Plesk, Ensim, Cpanel....etc? Each one has there own forums and you will find your answers there.
