I've got couchdb up and running on my webfaction server (well almost, not all tests pass yet). Now I want to install couchapp. I've used the following cmd to try and install it:

easy_install-2.5 -s $HOME/bin -d $HOME/lib/python2.5 couchapp

I get the following error:

command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

Any ideas as to what I need to do to get it to run are greatly appreciated. Thanks Tom

It sounds like a missing dependency or package. Does it say what is missing?

If you can use Python2.6 or Python2.7 instead of Python2.5, couchapp will install properly. To install couchapp for Python2.6, enter:

mkdir ~/lib/python2.6
easy_install-2.6 couchapp

For Python2.7, enter:

mkdir ~/lib/python2.7
easy_install-2.7 couchapp

Try running the following commands before you run easy_install-2.5:

mkdir $HOME/tmp
export TEMP=$HOME/tmp

Hope that helps!
