Digest::SHA1 Crypt::PasswdMD5 install failure, with easyapache

If you’re trying to install cPanel, and it hangs on:

\_ /usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller

and your post-cpanel install easyapache bails on:

!! Failed to install CPAN Perl module(s) Digest::SHA1 Crypt::PasswdMD5 !!

I’ve seen this fix work with perl  v5.10.1 on CentOS release 6.4:

Check to see if cpan is installed (and if not, install it):

yum install perl-CPAN

And then install the modules:

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/perlinstaller Digest::SHA1 Crypt::PasswdMD5

Then your easyapache should run and everything should be happy again.
