Following on from Amazon S3 alternatives for backup I’ve tried to take a look at the Amazon option in VirtualMin > Backup and Restore > Cloud Storage Providers, but receive the error:
Cloud storage provider Amazon S3 cannot be used : The Perl module S3::QueryStringAuthGenerator needed to communicate with Amazon’s S3 service is not installed. Use the Perl Modules page in Webmin to install it.
When I click the Perl Modules link in the error line, I get to an Install Module page which has the following error:
Failed to install module : Module S3::QueryStringAuthGenerator was not found in the CPAN modules list
Perl isn’t something I’ve ever tangled with and I can’t seem to find anything obvious in the UI to manage it, or CPAN. How can I resolve this issue?
PS: I did try Webmin > Tools > Perl Modules and clicking the “From CPAN” radio box and the associated icon that pops up a new window… however searching for “s3” brings up a large list, none of which match S3::QueryStringAuthGenerator
