a bit outdated, but better than could be, I guess... ok, thank you for reply!

One correction here as all new accounts are now put on our CloudLinux 7 servers which uses 5.16.3. Only our CloudLinux 6 servers which all will be migrated to CloudLinux 7 before the end of the year are running 5.10.1.

Great! Are the new accounts created on CloudLinux 7 ? or can I ask to be on it when ordering?

Your account should be setup on a CL7 server by default without needing to request it. If you do happen to be setup on a CL6 server (very small chance of this happening) just let us know and we'll get you moved to a CL7 system.

How can an existing customer know if they are currently on a CL6 server?

In cPanel if you click server information and the kernel version starts with 3.10- then you're on a CL7 server. It's unlikely many users are on CL6 at this point as all servers in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York are running CL7. The majority of servers in Singapore are now CL7 with our plan to eventually move everyone to CL7. We're currently migrating everyone in Amsterdam and that will be completed within the next month or so. Our Hong Kong location we hope to start the migration process in the next 2 months and similarly our Toronto location will be within the next few months.

A quick way to find out the Perl version is to run the command

perl -v

If you don't have ssh access, you can create a cgi-bin job to do that.
Put the following into a file named something like

perl -v

Don't forget to chmod +x that file, then from browser do:

(Interestingly, that worked without the usual requirement for Content-type: text/plain\n\n.
I have no idea why that was the case.)

You'll get back something like:
... > This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi
... > (with 39 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)
