I’m trying to install a new Python environment on my shared hosting. I follow the steps written in this post:
mkdir ~/src wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.1/Python-2.7.1.tgz tar -zxvf Python-2.7.1.tar.gz cd Python-2.7.1 mkdir ~/.localpython ./configure --prefix=/home/<user>/.localpython make make install
After coming to the
./configure --prefix=/home/<user>/.localpython command, I get the following output:
checking for --enable-universalsdk... no checking for --with-universal-archs... 32-bit checking MACHDEP... linux3 checking EXTRAPLATDIR... checking machine type as reported by uname -m... x86_64 checking for --without-gcc... no checking for gcc... no checking for cc... no checking for cl.exe... no configure: error: in `/home3/mikos89/Python-2.7.1': configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH See `config.log' for more details.
How can this problem be solved? I’ve been trying to find a solution for 3 hours, but I’m still stuck in one place.
