    configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH-problems installing apache


    I am having troubles installing apache. I get the following error message in the terminal window:

    configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

    i have been reading about the issue and it seems to be something to do with the compiler. But i donnot know whether it is installed or not, or what exactly is meant by it not being on the path.

    when i type: $ echo $PATH
    i get the following but dont know what it means or what to do:
    /usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/rock/bin

    Please advise
    Kind regards
    Brad

    The Gnu C compiler (gcc) is the standard compiler for Linux, and it normally resides in /usr/bin. Since that's in your path, it sounds like you don't have gcc installed. How to install it depends on your distro, but the general guideline is to go into your package manager and do a search for gcc.
