[Solved] ERROR: phpize failed, command not found in PECL

If you are installing PHP extensions using PECL, you might end up with an error

pecl install uploadprogress
WARNING: channel "pecl.php.net" has updated its protocols, use "pecl channel-update pecl.php.net" to update
downloading uploadprogress- ...
Starting to download uploadprogress- (9,040 bytes)
....done: 9,040 bytes
4 source files, building
running: phpize
sh: phpize: command not found
ERROR: `phpize' failed


The error clearly indicates that issue with phpize. This requires a php-devel to work as phpize is included in php-devel.

Just install php-devel package using yum.

yum -y install php-devel

Then try installing PHP extension again using PECL which should work fine.

Hope this helps!
