About to install/compile Python 2.7.3 in parallel with the default 2.4 that came with the system. Are there any specific modules that must be compiled for Askbot to work?

We install the following packages (giving Debian names here, you'll need to look up equivalent names for centos): build-essential git-core libxml2-dev gettext postgresql postgresql-server-devel-all python-setuptools.

Run .configure --enable-shared; make

In the end run make altinstall. Altinstall part is very important so that you keep the system version of python.

Are postgresql and postgresql-server-devel-all a must? My server is running MySQL

I signed up to receive emails on this question, but your answer did not trigger that. Are mails being sent to those that sign up for it?
