AWS RHEL7 missing packages

I've been stuck trying to install a LAMP web server on my virtual machine running RHEL7 because the packages appear to be missing!

I've installed and enabled various repositories but I still can't see the packages I want.

I'll take you through the steps:-

1)

sudo yum clean


2)
sudo yum update


3)
sudo yum install httpd24 php56 mysql55-server php56-mysqlnd


Then I get the following:-

Loaded plugins: amazon-id, rhui-lb, search-disabled-repos
No package httpd24 available.
No package php56 available.
No package mysql55-server available.
No package php56-mysqlnd available.
Error: Nothing to do


4)
sudo yum repolist all


Loaded plugins: amazon-id, rhui-lb, search-disabled-repos

5) I also tried
sudo yum –-enablerepo=epel install httpd24 php56 mysql55-server php56-mysqlnd
- but this didn't do anything!

What am I missing??

Thanks!

Answer

These packages are not correctly named.
You can use 'yum search' to find the right package. For example:

yum search httpd

Will return lots of packages including :

httpd.x86_64 : Apache HTTP Server

Then you can get informations about this package with 'yum info' :

yum info httpd.x86_64
Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager
Installed Packages
Name        : httpd
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 2.2.15
Release     : 47.el6_7.1
Size        : 2.9 M
Repo        : installed
From repo   : rhel-6-server-rpms
Summary     : Apache HTTP Server
URL         : http://httpd.apache.org/
License     : ASL 2.0
Description : The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, efficient, and     extensible
            : web server.

Here the version is 2.2.15.

Using the --enable-repo=epel option is useless as this repo is enable in your repositories.

Hope it helps.
