Fixing "Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation"


Posted by iKevinShah in Webmaster22 December, 2016

Recently, faced this issue where I was trying to install a binary and got this issue ...

Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation and the $PHP_AUTOCONF environment variable. Then, rerun this script.

The issue occurred when the binary was running phpize . Turns out it was due to missing "autoconf" package.

Solution:

Just need to install autoconf.

For CentOS / RHEL:

sudo yum install autoconf

For Ubuntu :

sudo apt-get install autoconf

** For installing your own :**


wget http://mirror2.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/gnuftp/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-latest.tar.gz
tar -zxvf autoconf-latest.tar.gz
cd autoconf-* 
./configure
echo $? #Ensure this is 0, if not please fix the error encountered
make
echo $? #Ensure this is 0, if not please fix the error encountered
make install
echo $? #If this is 0, installation was successful

Thats it.
