Ubuntu Tipps

snappy requires C++ and therefore might require for you to install the g++ or build-essential package.

If you get an error about "this file requires compiler and library support" you might need to enfore the compilation with

$ export CXXFLAGS=-std=c++11
$ phpize
$ ./configure
$ make
You can’t perform that action at this time.
