The Webtatic Yum repository is a CentOS/RHEL repository containing updated web-related packages.
Its main goals are:
- to provide CentOS/RHEL administrators with the latest stable minor releases of web development/hosting software, which are not provided in CentOS/RHEL distribution minor releases.
- to serve as an additional installation option for some of Webtatic’s projects.
To set up the repository, install the webtatic-release RPM:
yum install epel-release rpm -Uvh https://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el7/webtatic-release.rpm
yum install epel-release rpm -Uvh https://mirror.webtatic.com/yum/el6/latest.rpm
The RPMs are built from the also provided SRPMs. The Mock build system is used to build both i386 and x86_64 RPMs which satisfy the base, updates and extra repositories of CentOS, which are set up in the base installation of CentOS.
Webtatic EL6/EL7 usage
Webtatic avoids using the same package names as the base repositories that CentOS/RHEL 6⁄7 uses, so that packages are not implicitly automatically upgraded without consent. This also means that the repository can be run enabled=1.
To install packages you just need to use the correct package name as described in the packages wiki:
yum install package-name<br />
To install packages from the archive repository, you need to specify the version of the package you want and enable the archive repository:
yum install package-name.version --enablerepo=webtatic-archive<br />
