Problem with Perl Upgrade from Perl 5.6.1 to Perl 5.8.8

P: 6
Hi, i'm trying to upgrade Perl 5.6.1 to Perl 5.8.8 as well but without success. I have downloaded the Perl5.8.8 version from CPAN and extract it to my remote machine. Then i start upgrading Perl by running the following command:

rm -f config.sh Policy.sh
sh Configure
make
make test
make install

All the commands above seem run completed successfully. However, when i check the version again, it still showing as version Perl 5.6.1. Could anyone please help? Thanks!

I understand that you have a valid question, but this is your only warning. It is not acceptable to hijack other's threads.
