Configure: error: Please reinstall the libcurl distribution

While trying to setup nginx web server, I received the following error on compilation of php from source: Configure: error: Please reinstall the libcurl distribution

As it turns out, curl-devel was not installed.

So after installing that, the problem was fixed.

For CentOS:

yum -y install curl-devel

More might be missing - if so try installing:

yum install freetype-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel libpng libjpeg t1lib  libc-client-devel  libmcrypt-devel gmp-devel mysql-devel

Drupal: How to generate different view results, using a taxonomy keyword as an argument

We would create a new node type(Product) for our market products, and a taxonomy vocabulary(Product Categories), which we would then asign to the aforementioned node type. Finally, we would create a view with the following options:

Upgrade Java 1.4 to 1.5 on Centos 5.5

While trying to install Solr in Centos, I noticed that Java 1.5 is required, however Java 1.4 is installed by default.
Now, in order not to have Tomcat start the old Java version, we need to uninstall it using a simple yum line:

sudo yum remove java

Next on the list is to install the new Java versions. Good thing it is included :)

sudo yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk


yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel

Finally, we are ready to install Tomcat:

sudo yum install -y tomcat5

Start tomcat with:

service tomcat5 start
