When I am trying to create the Postgres extension “plperlu”, I am getting the below error.

defaultdb=> CREATE EXTENSION plperlu;
ERROR:  permission denied to create extension "plperlu"
HINT:  Must be superuser to create this extension.

This extension is listed under the supported extension section.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, DigitalOcean does not support the “plperlu” Postgres extension as it’s an untrusted language that would allow the full ability to access anything the Postgres process can.

This extension will be removed from the DO soon from the supported list of Postgres extensions.
