This seems unnecessarily convoluted for a workaround to what on the surface seems like a fairly run of the mill problem. Do you have shell access as part of your hosting?

    In case anyone else is interested in this, I had to install the CGI::Ajax module into my home directory and then reference that path in the script like this:
    use lib '/usr/home/username/perl5/lib/perl5/'; use CGI::Ajax;
    That worked!

    For more detailed instructions here is exactly what I followed:

    To begin using the CPAN interactive tool, log into your account and us +e the following command: /usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell This will display the CPAN shell prompt: cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601) ReadLine support enabled cpan> By default, CPAN installs modules in a central location where customer +s don't have write access. Here is the command to configure CPAN to inst +all modules in your home directory instead: o conf makepl_arg LIB=DIRECTORY_NAME Substitute DIRECTORY_NAME with the directory where you'd like to insta +ll the Perl module. For example, if user 'example' wanted to install a library in his 'Lib' directory, it would look like this: cpan> o conf makepl_arg LIB=/usr/home/example/Lib makepl_arg LIB=/usr/home/example/Lib cpan> All you need to do now is tell CPAN to install the modules you're interested in. For example, if you wanted to install the Acme::Yoda mo +dule (to convert your website into Yoda-speak): cpan> install Acme::Yoda Running install for module Acme::Yoda You will see a lot of information as the CPAN program installs the per +l library for you. You may also see warnings that you don't have permiss +ion to install the module's man pages; this is normal. Hopefully, you shou +ld eventually see something like: /usr/bin/make install -- OK At this point, your Perl module is installed in your directory and rea +dy for use. Use the "q" command to quit from the CPAN shell. Any script which will use the newly installed module must be told wher +e it is installed, like this: use lib '/usr/home/example/Lib'; # The same as your LIB= configuration use Acme::Yoda;
    Note that it didn't work until I edited the "use" line like this:
    use lib '/usr/home/username/perl5/lib/perl5/';
