Today we are officially announcing the InfluxData package repository. This package repository can be used with Ubuntu, Debian, RedHat, and CentOS Linux package management systems, with more distributions and operating systems coming soon. You will now be able to automatically download and install the latest InfluxData releases as they become available. In addition, all releases are GPG-signed, ensuring that all packages are verified and secure before installation.

Configuring

To get started, follow the instructions below for your Linux distribution of choice:

CentOS Users

Currently CentOS 6 and 7 are the only supported versions. To add the InfluxData repository, copy and paste the following into a terminal as an administrator/root user:

cat <<EOF | tee /etc/yum.repos.d/influxdb.repo
[influxdb]
name = InfluxDB Repository - RHEL \$releasever
baseurl = https://repos.influxdata.com/centos/\$releasever/\$basearch/stable
enabled = 1
gpgcheck = 1
gpgkey = https://repos.influxdata.com/influxdb.key
EOF

Once the InfluxData repository has been added, you can install the latest stable release of InfluxDB using the following commands:

yum install influxdb

And to remove InfluxDB:

yum remove influxdb

RedHat Enterprise Linux Users

As with CentOS, only RHEL 6 and 7 are currently supported. To add the InfluxData repository, copy and paste the following into a terminal as an administrator/root user:

cat <<EOF | tee /etc/yum.repos.d/influxdb.repo
[influxdb]
name = InfluxDB Repository - RHEL \$releasever
baseurl = https://repos.influxdata.com/rhel/\$releasever/\$basearch/stable
enabled = 1
gpgcheck = 1
gpgkey = https://repos.influxdata.com/influxdb.key
EOF

Once the InfluxData repository has been added, you can install the latest stable release of InfluxDB using the following commands:

yum install influxdb

And to remove InfluxDB:

yum remove influxdb

For Ubuntu, versions 12.04 (Precise), 14.04 (Trusty), 14.10 (Utopic), and 15.04 (Vivid) are currently supported. To add the InfluxData repository, copy and paste the following into a terminal as an administrator/root user:
