How do I install applications using yum on CentOS or Fedora?

You can install many common applications and dependencies you may require on
your server using yum. For instance if you wanted to install webalizer you
would use the following steps:

1. Login to your server Via SSH to root

2. Type the command yum install in this case:
yum install webalizer
then press enter.

3. Yum will then look up the required data needed to install webalizer and
ask you to confirm the installation by pressing Y for yes

There is nothing further that you would have to do at this point webalizer
will be installed on your server automatically.

You can search for packages installable via yum with the following syntax:
yum search

You will probably want to pipe the output to a pager or text file.
