For those who, like me, use the Perl module WebService::Linode to configure their DNS settings with Linode, you will have noticed that starting today we are seeing
301 Moved Permanently at ... error message.
This is easily resolved by changing line 36 on your Base.pm module file from “https://api.linode.com/api/” to “https://api.linode.com”.
Depending on how you installed the Linode module the file will reside in different locations. For me, the location is: /usr/share/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1/WebService/Linode/Base.pm
It’s a shame that they changed this URL without more public communication.
