Configure YUM repository using DVD or CD ROM

Necessary when for example you are configuring a Redhat Server without a paid for subscription
at lease this gives you access to all the programs on the CD / DVD

Mount your CD Rom. in this example we mount cd rom to  to /mnt/cdrom

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

Create the new repo file called cdrom.repo under /etc/repos.d directory.

vi /etc/repos.d/cdrom.repo

Add the following details.

name=CDROM Repo

cntrl -  x to save

1. [cdrom]  -  Name of the Section.
2. name =  Name of the repository
3. baseurl = Location of the package
4. Enabled = Enable repository
5 gpgcheck= Enable secure installation
6. gpgkey= Location of the key

To test
Install the package using the yum command, let’s install the MySQL package using  YUM.

yum install mysql-server
