PIP is a package management system used to install and manage software packages written in Python.
PIP can be installed either by using YUM or with Curl & Python.
1. To begin, you first need to login to connect to your server via SSH. See here for common SSH clients:
SSH client utilities (Free):
Bitvise SSH client:
MobaXterm (Free with available Paid Pro version):
Solar-PuTTY (Free with available paid versions):
There are many others available out there as well.
2. Login to your CentOS 7 server with root user with your favorite SSH client
3. Once logged in add/install the EPEL repository with the command
4. On the next step update the packages with the command
`yum –y update`
yum –y update
5. The last step would be to install python-PIP and any other required packages with the command
`yum -y install python-pip`
6. Verify the installation with the command
7. If all went well and you are seeing above output, you should be ready to use PIP at this time.
