I have the minimal install from CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-1708.iso running in VirtualBox.
Due to an Apache HTTPD dependency issue, I am trying to configure pcre via:
./configure --prefix /usr/local/pcre/8.41
but I end up with:
configure: error: You need a C++ compiler for C++ support.
I find GCC/CPP/CC via
whereis gcc whereis cpp whereis cc
and, respectively, receive:
cpp: /usr/bin/cpp /usr/lib/cpp /usr/share/man/man1/cpp.1.gz
gcc: /usr/bin/gcc /usr/lib/gcc /usr/libexec/gcc /usr/share/man/man1/gcc.1.gz
yum install gcc reports:
Package gcc-4.8.5-16.el7_4.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I am quite green in regards to administering Linux from scratch but I am trying really hard to learn how to install Apache/PHP via
yum's latest PHP is 5.4.
