Cannot install python-ldap with pip2.7 on RHEL 6.5 due to many install errors

I am installing python-ldap on a RHEL 6.5 Server. I am on Python 2.7.9.

I am using the following command to installl

pip2.7 install python-ldap

The compilation process fails with lots of errors.

Could someone please guide me?

You don't have the headers lber.h and ldap.h installed.

To find out what package provides them, run

yum provides */lber.h */ldap.h

That tells you you need to install openldap-devel so run yum install openldap-devel
