HDP on Linux – Installation Forum

Package 'apache2-mod_php5' not found

    I am trying to install HDP(1.3) with ambari, my OS SLES11.

    The ambary installed successfully, the cluster installation failed on the last step(Install, Start and Test).
    I got this error message:
    err: /Stage[2]/Hdp-monitor-webserver/Hdp::Package[httpd]/Hdp::Package::Process_pkg[httpd]/Package[apache2-mod_php5]/ensure: change from absent to present failed: Execution of ‘/usr/bin/zypper –quiet install -l -y apache2-mod_php5’ returned 104: Package ‘apache2-mod_php5’ not found.

    I tried to solve it, but without success,
    I went to software management in yast and I have installed apache2-name mod_php5 and then I ran the command “a2enmod php5”, I rebooted the computer and still I get the same error.

    Thanks for the help

    I forgot to say, it falls at step “Ganglia Server install”.



    Hi Kobi,

    You need to ensure your repositories are set up correctly. You need to use the SLES 11 SDK CD to setup various packages.
    I found this blog useful when getting HDP installed on SLES 11:

    Hi Dave,

    I installed the SDK and it solved the problem.

    Thank you very much!!
