Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the right section but is there an Easy patch to install WWW::Curl::Easy because trying to install it failed and it requires a dependency called curl-config.

I tried to install the perl module WWW::Curl::Easy on my server in the perl module section and it gave the following error message:

====================================

All available perl module install methods have failed


====================================

How do I install curl-config? Do I type in curl-config as root to install this and then I can install the above perl module?

Kind regards,

I believe you actually want the libcurl-devel package for this.

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# rpm -ql libcurl-devel |grep curl-config
/usr/bin/curl-config
/usr/share/man/man1/curl-config.1.gz

Hi Lauren,

Can I install libcurl-devel via "Install an RPM" on WHM? Is that the same thing as your command line?

Also, last night I found a webpage that said just do this:

centOS: yum install curl-config

Is that the same as your line of codes?

Hello,


On the CLI you would do:

Code:
yum -y install libcurl-devel
curl-config is a part of this package and not present in the CentOS base repository separately so you wouldn't be able to just install it.

You can also use the WHM>>Software>>Install an RPM UI to do this and libcurl-devel is present.

Thanks for the explanation. I used that last yum command and then installed the perl moduled and it has worked.
