    Hello,


    I have been trying to install Passenger alongside Ruby and Rails on a brand new cPanel server running on VMware.


    [root@cpanel ~]# httpd -v

    Server version: Apache/2.4.23 (cPanel)

    Server built: Aug 24 2016 19:30:51



    The installation of Ruby Version Manager along with Ruby and Rails was very straightforward.


    [root@cpanel ~]# ruby -v

    ruby 2.3.1p112 (2016-04-26 revision 54768) [x86_64-linux]

    [root@cpanel ~]# rails -v

    Rails 5.0.0.1



    My issue comes when trying to run the passenger-install-apache2-module. I get errors about the following required software:


    * Checking for Apache 2 development headers...

    Found: no

    * Checking for Apache Portable Runtime (APR) development headers...

    Found: no

    * Checking for Apache Portable Runtime Utility (APU) development headers...

    Found: no



    My understanding is these are installed via cPanel but the installer just doesn’t know where they are.


    Would you be able to assist me with resolving the above errors at all please? This is the last stumbling block.


    Many Thanks


    Nick,

    I managed to get Phusion passenger installed by doing the following:

    # yum remove httpd-tools
    # yum install ea-apache24-devel

    I have now uploaded some site code, bundled it okay but get the following error within my apache2 error log:

    Any help appreciated.
