Sorry if I post in the wrong forum category.
I updated (freebsd-update) Freebsd from 11.2 to 11.3 and then to 11.4-RELEASE-p4. System (and all services) works OK ;)
I want update very old ports by postmaster.
I have strange error when trying update perl 5.28 to 5.32.
Today, on FreeBSd-12.1p10, I ran a script that has been working on FreeBSD for years and got this result: env: perl: No such file or directory. Which is, to put it mildly, bizarre. So I checked for perl: which perl | echo $? ==> 1. So, no perl installed. So I checked that:

I'm upgrading Perl as advised in UPDATING using the following:
portmaster -bdgyf `pkg shlib -qR libperl.so.5.28`
which re-builds net-snmp
which re-builds mysql
which re-builds cmake
which requires python
which requires py37-sphinx

For one of my projects I need Perl to access data from a database. SQLite3 would be perfectly suitable for my needs, except for the fact that by default SQLite does not know my national characters. For example, a

turns all ASCII characters of the name to...
Recently I decided to extend the functionality of my home server, so I could change my FreeBSD password through the web interface I put together. A little research led me to the manual page of pw, and I found exactly what I needed.
pw usermod -n johnsmith -h fd
However, I have trouble...

Is possible to send a command from the main host to jail host?

I would like to be able to run certain Perl scripts on my system as root, even though the "user" calling them is not running as root.
For each script I can write a C wrapper, setting setuid root for that wrapper; the wrapper would change the UID to 0 and then call the Perl script, which itself...
All versions of Perl5 have been vulnerable since Thursday, but then the prevention from installing it was ignored in the portstree and packages. It is required for x-11/xorg, (any version of) LLVM and most other packages. How much of a vulnerability is it?
perl 5-5.20.3_13 is vulnerable:
I can finally execute a "Hello world" Perl script from a command line (have encountered numerous problems with upgrade to perl5-5.24.0), but when called from a Firefox browser session, the following errors are reported:
