I'm trying to install pureftpd on CentOS6, but when I run the yum command:

yum install pure-ftpd

I always get package not found

Is there a way I can install `pure-ftpd' in Cent?

You need to enable the epel repository before you can install it

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

Then your yum command will work.

Greet, thanks alot for that. –  terrid25 May 30 '12 at 13:39

Yes but you must configure epel repo first. There is no pure-ftpd in basics centos repo. Here is link to rpm http://ftp.ps.pl/pub/Linux/fedora-epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

Download it using

wget http://ftp.ps.pl/pub/Linux/fedora-epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

next install with

rpm -ivh http://ftp.ps.pl/pub/Linux/fedora-epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm

After that you will be able to install pure-ftpd with yum.

You can always try to compile it from source but the best choice will be instalation with yum.
