I can't use "pip install cffi" without getting the following error:

c/_cffi_backend.c:13:17: error: ffi.h: No such file or directory

Long error, but that seems to be the cause. I tried installing from source (that worked for gevent) and I get the same error.

I need this module installed as it's a prereq for a web app I'm attempting to deploy.

Please feel free to open a support ticket so we can see the exact error, however in testing our CentOS 6 servers there should be no issue installing 'cffi'.

Our CentOS 5 servers you would need to install 'cffi' from source.

Thanks! I've been migrated to CentOS 6 and all worked without a hitch. Much easier than trying to install from source! Appreciate the help
