I've downloaded OL7.5 Boot ISO image and want to install the last version of Oracle Linux.

Which address could I use to do it?

  • In general people do network installs from sources on their own network, at LAN speed, and not over the internet- In other words : first download the installation sources and extract and copy their contents to a local web server or (NFS share) then use the address of that server - docs.oracle.com/cd/E52668_01/E54695/html/… – HBruijn Aug 20 '19 at 21:18
  • We do not have storage space for this additional purpose and do not need a lot of OL installations. Only minimal install is preferable and install 'On the network' using Internet source seems more appropriate for this purpose. Thank you! – Gryu Aug 20 '19 at 21:33

To install specific version (for x86_64 platform):

http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/5/base/x86_64/

Number 5 between OL7/ and /base could be replaced by any available update number.

OL7 repository site

Installation of the last update of OL7 (for x86_64 platform) will be:

http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/latest/x86_64/

Latest network installation source

After installation we have:

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.7 (Maipo)

As of today, this content has changed and the above is not correct. But using pointers from Gryu's answer above, I was able to find that the current URL for specifying at install time for base OS for current 8.3 is:

public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL8/3/baseos/base/x86_64/

Note the additional "baseos" inclusion. Also note that Oracle intentionally obfuscates these paths, as you cannot simply "navigate" to them via normal browser to confirm, so you need to poke around to find the appropriate path if it changes.
