Yum Server

Sometimes, you need to update single package on your Linux (Oracle – RedHat) and you have to search and find RPM file on this regard or compile the package from its source code.

But we are talking enterprise Linux servers that you can’t accept any risk of installing miscellaneous or unreliable package on your server.

So you need to have safe and secure source for installation or upgrade.

Maybe, you are thinking about YUM! Yes, you can update your application by run Yum but if your server has no connection to internet!

There is many solution for updating Linux packages but we are talking about a single application and some special conditions.

Hopefully, Oracle has a service that called “Yum Server” and the service is free for use by anyone. Oracle Yum Server offers you a free and convenient way to install the latest Oracle Linux packages as well as packages from the Oracle VM installation media via a yum client.

Please consider that this service deliver no support to you and just you can download updated packages from that.
