Install Python 2.7 to your account
Bluehost uses the preinstalled version of Python that ships with CentOS. Because of this it is often not the latest release. This article will explain how to install an updated version of python locally.
In order to install python locally, you will need to be added to the Compiler group. Please contact Support to request you be added to the Compiler group before proceeding.
mkdir ~/python cd ~/python wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.2/Python-2.7.2.tgz tar zxfv Python-2.7.2.tgz find ~/python -type d | xargs chmod 0755 cd Python-2.7.2
Once extracted you can use the following commands to configure and install Python.
./configure --prefix=$HOME/python make make install
Modify the .bashrc
vim ~/.bashrcPress i
export PATH=$HOME/python/Python-2.7.2/:$PATHWrite the changes (press
ESC) and close vim:
