I need to install numpy (version 1.7) in my home directory.

I tried the command `pip-2.7 install -I -U --user numpy

But I get the error message:

OSError: Permission denied '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/numpy-1.5.0/py2.7.egg-info'

I tried to follow the instructions for installing python packages, but no luck. Installing other packages like sqlalchemy or pymysql worked fine. How do I install numpy 1.7 on my account?

Hello,

Can you get it to work with the '--no-use-wheel' flag?

If not please submit a ticket and we'll look into it right away.

thanks, the '--no-use-wheel' flag worked!

Here is the solution that worked for me:

Step 1: upgrade pip

pip2.7 install --upgrade pip

Step 2: install numpy with the '--no-use-wheel' flag

pip2.7 install -I -U --user --no-use-wheel numpy
