shtool does not exist or is not executable
You may be received the error ” shtool does not exist or is not executable ” while using PECL installs. It is because of the /tmp directory is mounted as noexec for security reasons.
[root@server ]# pecl install imagick downloading imagick-3.4.3.tgz ... Starting to download imagick-3.4.3.tgz (245,410 bytes) ...................................................done: 245,410 bytes 19 source files, building running: phpize Configuring for: PHP Api Version: 20100412 Zend Module Api No: 20100525 Zend Extension Api No: 220100525 shtool at '/var/tmp/imagick/build/shtool' does not exist or is not executable. Make sure that the file exists and is executable and then rerun this script. ERROR: `phpize' failed [root@server ]#
This issue can be resolved by changing the PECL temp_dir to a new path.
mkdir /root/tmp pecl config-set temp_dir /root/tmp
Sometimes the pecl config-set does not work due to a known bug. Then run the following command.
pear config-set temp_dir /root/tmp
