Installing the MongoDB pecl extension on a cPanel server

If your cPanel server has /tmp mounted with the noexec option you may run into the following error when trying to install the extention.

 

"checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs."

You can remount /tmp with exec, run the pecl install and than remount /tmp again with no exec:

 

 

  • mount -o,remount,rw,exec /var/tmp
  • pecl install mongo
  • mount -o,remount,rw,noexec /var/tmp

 

If you are not comfortable remounting /tmp. You can try the following instead which will create a symlink to another mount that doesn't have the noexec option.

  • mkdir /root/tmp.pear
  • mkdir /root/tmp.pear-build-root
  • rm -rf /tmp/pear*
  • ln -s /root/tmp.pear /tmp/pear
  • ln -s /root/tmp.pear-build-root /tmp/pear-build-root
  • pecl install mongo
