HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

HDP 2.0 php_curl on CentOS 6.4

  • #41753
    Robert Volker

    The ‘php_curl’ software requirements for HDP 2.0 is not obvious, to me. More specifically how to install this package on CentOS 6.4?

    I’ve tried yum install php
    yum install php-common

    Documentation about php_curl on the net is a little to slim for my skill level. (it’s as obscure as pdsh was for the HDP 1.3).
    1. How to verify that the required software ‘php_curl’ is installed and ready?
    2. Do I need to now configure php_curl in Apache?
    3. “on each of your hosts” php_curl? Is this true for the slave nodes as well?

    Hi Robert,

    Are you running an Ambari installation or are you installing the RPMs manually?
    If you run “rpm -qa | grep php” and “rpm -qa | grep curl” what are your outputs?



    Robert Volker

    I’m still at section 2.4 Software Requirements. I will use the automatic Ambari install, that is I’ll yum and run the ambari service.

    # rpm -qa|grep php
    # rpm -qa|grep curl
    bash: php_curl: command not found

    Thank you for the help and timely response,

    Robert Volker

    Should I proceed with the Ambari install despite *not* having the “required” software ‘php_curl’ installed on “all hosts”?
    -I’m still struggling to get php_curl on my CentOS 6.4 machines. Should I consider using another linux distro?

    Jeff Sposetti

    Please proceed with the install w/o installing php_curl.
