I have a VServer with OpenSuse 11 and Plesk runnning. Right now the server runs a php website. I would like also to run a Rails-Application with mod_rails (phusioin passenger).
I have installed ruby and rails and also I am trying to get phusion passenger to run on my appache 2 which is not working as I wish it would.
What I did was running following commands:
gem install passenger passenger-install-apache2-module
After I ran the second command the installer tells me that I am missing
- Apache 2 development headers
- Apache portable headers (APR)
- Apache portable runtime utility development headers (APU)
After some investigation I found that my solution could be to install following packages
OpenSuse 11 has zypper and this does not contain these packages. I ran into an article which discribes to install these packages with yum. But yum is not compatible with the python version of my linux distr.
I also saw that it is possible to download the source of apache and compile it with the correct headers but since this vserver has a running site. New installation or compiling is not an option.
So how do I get my prerequisites installed to make passenger install and run on my server?
Any help would be great (and bear with me I'm new with linux)...
