The Perfect Setup - CentOS 4.3 (64-bit) - Flex Missing
 
During the Howto, I encountered an error:

Code:

+--------------------------------------------------------+
| You now have successfully built and installed the      |
| Apache 1.3 HTTP server. To verify that Apache actually |
| works correctly you now should first check the        |
| (initially created or preserved) configuration files  |
|                                                        |
|  /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
|                                                        |
| and then you should be able to immediately fire up    |
| Apache the first time by running:                      |
|                                                        |
|  /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl start
|                                                        |
| Or when you want to run it with SSL enabled use:      |
|                                                        |
|  /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl
|                                                        |
| Thanks for using Apache.      The Apache Group        |

ERROR: The PHP binary coming with ISPConfig does not work properly on your system! The installation routine stops here!

After installing flex:
Code:

yum -y install flex
I gave it another try and...
Code:

Congratulations! Your ISPConfig system is now installed.
So, I guess the tutorial needs to be updated, because without "flex" configuring PHP is not going to happen on CentOS 4.2 and 4.3.

ps I'm using an updated CentOS 4.2 x86_64, but ISPConfig reconizes it as CentOS 4.3.

OOPS.. major screw-up!!! ...i'm such an ass!

flex was missing on my system, because I installed a minimal system. During the installation of CentOS i always choose "Minimal" to get a lean clean machine!:p

After that I build the system peace by peace... and because of that, flex is not installed from the get go...

I usually have my own notes, on how I install my systems... and forgot to look at them before I started this thread.

Sorry for this mistake... CASE CLOSE (he said in shame):o
