We are pleased to announce native Linux packages for RedHat/Fedora derived RPM distributions, including RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, and ScientificLinux. Installation and updates can be accomplished via yum, and the passenger-release package includes all of the necessary yum configuration.
The easiest way to install Phusion Passenger and keep it up to date is to install the passenger-release package from the main repository:
- Fedora Core 14:
rpm -Uvh http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/fedora/14/passenger-release.noarch.rpm
- Fedora Core 13:
rpm -Uvh http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/fedora/13/passenger-release.noarch.rpm
- RHEL 5 / CentOS 5 / ScientificLinux 5:
- Note: these packages depend on EPEL.
rpm -Uvh http://passenger.stealthymonkeys.com/rhel/5/passenger-release.noarch.rpm
- RHEL 6 / CentOS 6 / ScientificLinux 6:
- These packages will be available as soon as there is a stable beta of either CentOS 6 or SL 6 to use as a build platform.
From there you can use Yum to install packages. For example, try one of these:
yum install nginx-passenger
yum install mod_passenger
yum install passenger-standalone
