Error while installing mongo driver for PHP on amazon linux


I tried to install the mongodb driver for PHP on Amazon Linux.
While running sudo pecl install mongo, I get the error message:

PEAR Version: 1.9.5
PHP Version: 5.3.29

I installed gcc which helped me progress further with the install till this error.

The best Guide I was able to find was here:
PHP’s guide:


evp is high-level cryptographic functions.

Try to install development libraries:

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

yum install openssl-devel
