So I was following this tutorial, but then I was stuck because when running the code:

# yum install spawn-fcgi

it says there is no package. I am using Nginx. Please suggest


Turn on EPEL repo:

 rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

then install spawn-fcgi:

 yum install spawn-fcgi

For CentOS 6.2 x64 I used this:

rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm

I found that repository here:


---Update July 2012

CentOS 6.2 32bit this worked for me:

rpm -ivh http://mirror.cogentco.com/pub/linux/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm
yum install spawn-fcgi

---Update March 2013

CentOS 6.2 64bit Linode:

rpm -ivh http://mirror.cogentco.com/pub/linux/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install spawn-fcgi

For future reference, this link might be helpful: How to enable "EPEL" repository for centos?
