How to add different mirrors for update? Centos 6.4

Post by denede » 2013/10/02 08:35:03

How can i add different mirrors for base, updates, extras, etc.. ?
Currently i only have this when i run yum update

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Excluding mirror: mirror.pnl.gov
* epel: fedora-epel.mirror.lstn.net
* remi: mirrors.mediatemple.net
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update


but i want to add this also

base: mirror.ovh.net
extras: mirror.ovh.net
updates: mirror.ovh.net

i need to update my system, to install some dependencies, and it won't work without other mirrors.

Just looks like you have all the CentOS repos disabled to me. Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo and check the "enabled=" lines are set to 1 for base and updates.

That is not the CentOS supplied repo file.
I don't know what you are running, but it is not a true CentOS.
Are you running cPanel or Plesk?
Is this a hosted machine?
what is the output of 'uname -a' ?

it is centos,but i don't know why I had 2 files of CentOS-Base.repo, 1.CentOS-Base.repo and 1.CentOS-Base.repo.disabled

removed the 1st one, renamed the 2nd, and now everything is perfect. have 300 updates. awsome.

i'm not running any cpanel or plesk. i have access to it only from terminal via putty
