storegrid installation on 64 bit RHEL / CentOS systems

Vembu’s excellent tech support helped me quickly resolve this problem. We ran into it again later on a different system and the same solution worked again:

Generally the StoreGrid apache installation will link the ‘’ filefrom the ‘/usr/lib’ directory. The error “/usr/lib/ could not read symbols: File in wrong format” will occur either when ‘/usr/lib/’ is a non-64 bit version (may be a 32 bit .so file) or the file is corrupted.

Please follow the below steps to resolve the issue:

1) Rename ‘/usr/lib/’ as ‘/usr/lib/’.

2) Copy the ‘/usr/lib64/’ as ‘/usr/lib/’.

So, as root:

mv /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
cp /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib/

We also found another package needed to be installed:

yum install compat-libstdc++-33

The installation should run successfully.
