Webmo enterprise 17 modification to run on MacOS 12

Post by rbadger »

Is there any way I can patch version 17 so it will run properly under Big Sur (MacOS 11) or greater?

Thanks, Robert Badger.

Note that if the issue(s) are what I believe they are, this is not at all related (directly) to macOS 12 but rather to newer versions of Perl. Most OSes have recently upgraded their Perl versions. Due to some important fundamental changes in Perl itself, this causes issues with older versions of WebMO. Unfortunately the changes are numerous (but small) so patching is not so simple.

I'm not 100% sure this is Perl related, since there is no indication of the specific issue below. But I do know that WebMO v21 works fine in new versions of Mac OS!
