Install an RPM

Valid for versions 82 through the latest version

RPM® (RPM Package Manager) refers to a software format, the software that the RPM package contains, and the package management system.

  • Your cPanel & WHM server includes several pre-installed RPMs and the ability to install more. However, this interface allows you to install an RPM for the operating system distribution, rather than the cPanel-provided RPMs.

  • To troubleshoot any RPM installation failures that may occur, follow the steps in our RPM Installation Failures documentation.

  • For more information about RPMs, visit the RPM website.

  • The interface requires several seconds to load due to the RPMs that reside on your server.
  • This interface only allows you to install RPMs that currently reside in your system’s repositories. You cannot install RPMs from a third-party repository.

To install an RPM, perform the following steps:
