Upload progress PECL uploadprogress library

In my Drupal status report I get the following message:

Your server is capable of displaying file upload progress, but does not have the required libraries. It is recommended to install the PECL uploadprogress library

So I decided to enable this on my Fedora server (same for CentOS), since I will probably need to do this on more servers, here are the steps it takes:

# yum install php-devel
# pecl install uploadprogress

if you get: pecl: command not found then you will need to run:

# yum install pear

Note: I found out this did not work because the name is now php-pear so use:

# yum install php-pear

Now you can finally run the command you need:

# pecl install uploadprogress

Note: if you get the error configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found

# yum install gcc

Add this line to /etc/php.ini

vi /etc/php.ini

insert extension=uploadprogress.so

And of course you will need to restart apache to make it take affect:

# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
