[EP-tech] Missing Perl Library Date::Calc

Hi Ilina Syazwani Musa,

These are additional libraries needed for IRStats2, Geo::IP to work out 
the country based on the IP address and Date::Calc to process dates, 
e.g. work out what the date was one month ago, one year ago, etc.  To 
install these Perl modules use one of the following commands:

yum install perl-Date-Calc perl-Geo-IP

apt install libdate-calc-perl libgeo-ip-perl

Once installed, you reload your webserver (e.g. apachectl graceful) to 
make sure it has loaded these new Perl modules.  There is a note on the 
wiki page for IRStats2 [1] that both of these are additional (to 
EPrints) dependencies but the page could do with a bit of an update, as 
there is quite a bit of out of date information and there is only 
instructions on how to install these dependencies on Debian based 
systems but not RedHat based ones.

Regards

David Newman
