You can access the repo either by using Yum or Rsync (probably in combination with mrepo). The instructions below are written for CentOS 6, to use with CentOS 7 or CentOS 8 change '6' for '7' or '8' .
You need to:
create the file
/etc/yum.repos.d/phcl.repo with the contents:
# Parliament Hill Computers Ltd - CentOS repository [phcl] name=PHCL for CentOS-$releasever baseurl=https://www.phcomp.co.uk/Software/centos$releasever-$basearch/RPMS.phcl/ gpgcheck=1 protect=0 gpgkey=https://www.phcomp.co.uk/Software/RPM-GPG-KEY-PHCL-CentOS-$releasever
Clean out the yum cache (recommended):
yum clean all
yum install package-name
You can browse the repository with rsync like this:
Once you have found what you want download a specific RPM with something like:
rsync rsync://www.phcomp.co.uk/downloads/centos6-x86_64/phcl/KeepAlive-1.5-1.1.x86_64.rpm .
mrepo is a way of maintaining an RPM repository.
You will already have a suitable file in
/etc/mrepo.conf.d/, you append this line:
phcl = rsync://www.phcomp.co.uk/downloads/centos$release-$arch/phcl/
and fetch and build with:
Then follow the Using Yum instructions above, but change the
baseurl to point to your server.
