Hi @alaametwally48

There’s a tutorial on how to compile packages - the example is curl, but in general can be used for any package, but some packages are more demanding than others, so you need to read the compile/installation readme of each source first: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-compile-and-install-packages-from-source-using-make-on-a-vps
