Foswiki RPMS for Redhat Installation

OBSOLETE The rpm packages are no longer available

-- GaryBright - 19 Nov 2012

Hi there

I am trying to install Foswiki on a RedHat ES6 machine

I have been following this guide

I had to change this
rpm -Uvh

rpm -Uvh

as 6.5 wasn't on the server.

but I get the following error running yum makecache

yum makecache
Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
epel/metalink | 15 kB 00:00 [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: foswiki. Please verify its path and try again

When trying to load with my browser I get "Sorry, no posts matched your criteria." error.

If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it


Check the FOSWiki repo:


created by the command from the installation instructions:

curl > foswiki.repo

I needed to change




replacing the $release portion of the URL with the appropriate version number... in my case 6
