Installing pip on Redhat Linux on Amazon AWS

The RHEL doesn't come with the Awscli or botosdk preinstalled unlike the Amazon Linux. To install the Awscli or python botosdk you need to install the python pip through which you can install the aws cli and boto sdk.

But the pip is not installed by default. Follow the following steps to install the python pip on RHEL 7 in Amazon Linux

 cd /tmp  
 yum install wget -y
  wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
 rpm -ivh epel-release-latest*
 yum install python-pip

This Will complete the installation of the python pip on the RHEL7

Checkout the version of the pip using following command

 [[email protected] tmp]# pip -V  
 pip 7.1.0 from /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages (python 2.7)
